Summary(first part) of those who have died, (very long) we shall remember them.
I know ot ain't much, but i cut and paste that as a FB status with"merely a sample " as prefix. People are sharing. I think it would be befitting for others to do likewise
Sorry, I didn't know how to do that and wasn't sure the originator would want his/her details known, hope that's ok.
I see no indicator of the originator.
Surely it s public domain info and collated for a reason?
Oh Saor Alba? A pen name? I left it out.
i'm not eligible for benefits. we don't have enough to live on. i can understand why people kill themselves.

Hi. A few months back, I'm sure on Urban (maybe even on this thread, but I have had a quick scan and cant see it) there was a one stop list of suicides, with a paragraph each and a substantiating link.
Anyone know where I might find it? I want to print it off to hand out to those attending Tory conference. Ta.
