This chapter presents an overview of what we currently know about social inequalities in the experience of dying. A review of existing evidence for social variation in premature mortality, cause, and place of death, is followed by consideration of how access to end of life care services may differ with social position. It concludes with a discussion of how policies and funding can and should influence inequalities in end of life experiences, highlighting areas for future research and advocacy.

Keywords:   social inequalities, death, premature mortality, end of life care, access to care
