This chapter discusses the production of narrative accounts and stories from professionals who are working outside of the framework of traditional professional-patient relationships. The chapter gives a description of how certain professionals, such as clergy and pathologists, work with 'private' information about the person who has died and how they use that information to produce stories that become a part of a more public story and record. This chapter is able to demonstrate how mediator deathwork can be an important part of the care of bereaved people, and it states that it requires more attention and recognition.
