What happens after you submit your survey responses? Where do your answers go? How is your opinion used? We want to answer these questions by sharing past examples of how your responses and opinions have made an impact.

The majority of citizens in Britain (55%) believe they will continue to exist in some form after they die.

30% of those surveyed find themselves thinking that they will see someone again who they know has died, with 36% of those surveyed saying they believe it’s possible to communicate with people who are no longer alive. This perception mirrors the reality experienced by 37% of Brits, who admitted that they’ve felt that they’ve been in touch with someone who has died.

In fact, 29% of those surveyed say they can converse with a specific person who is no longer alive and 45% believe that people who have died could be aware of what is taking place in our lives.

When asked if they pray privately, 23% said they do so often and 34% said sometimes. Conversely, 42% say they never pray privately.
