It is with great sadness that Not Dead Yet UK must report the sudden and untimely death of our member and dear friend Juliet Marlow. Juliet passed away on the 11th of August after a short illness.

She was NDYUK’s communication guru and lynchpin. She often spoke on our behalf and was responsible for ensuring that our supporters and allies were always kept informed about our campaigns.

Juliet was totally committed to this work and ensured that everyone knew exactly what we were doing, why we were doing it and she helped everybody take our message forward. She devoted a great amount of time and energy to our cause.

But there was also so much more to Juliet’s talents. She researched for us, she wrote for us and she spoke for us, often to very hostile audiences. She was courageous, kind and above all, one of the most generous people we have ever known.

Juliet’s funeral will take place on the 31st of August in Basingstoke.

Our love and prayers go to her family, friends and her partner Keith.

    Like everyone on NDY, I too was saddened and very shocked at the death of Juliet, her commitment to NDY was amazing and I think I can safely say it really was appreciated by all us. Sadly I never had the pleasure of meeting Juliet, I only got to know her through NDY on Facebook. Rest in peace Juliet and please know Keith, that Juliet will never be forgotten by any of us at NDY, finding someone as passionate about NDY and being able to do the work Juliet did for us is going to be pretty hard, Juliet is a hard act to follow that’s for sure! Take care Keith & (((((HUGS))))) if you want them xx

    I worked with Juliet on several occasions & talked often during various publicity stints for NDYUK. She was such a warm, funny, passionate, dedicated & caring person. The hole she leaves is too big to quantify. Juliet will be so missed by everyone who knew her & by so many who did not, because her drive for a fairer world will have touched them without their knowledge. We campaign to highlight how precious life is & Juliet was so very precious. I’ll miss her laugh, her humour & her drive. We all hope to leave a legacy & Juliet did that for sure.
    My heart felt sympathies to her family.
    Much love,

    I did not “know” Juliet but I and many others like me have a debt of gratitude towards her. Juliet was absolutely unique loved and admired by all in the NDY community in the UK as well as abroad. We all have lost a magnificent advocate and my sincere condolences to her beloved family – we are far the richer for her Stella work and contributions – Thank You seems such small words for an outstanding woman and her amazing actions – 🥀 🥀 🥀

    I met Juliet through campaigning at Not Dead Yet and we ended up becoming good friends. Juliet was a passionate and determined campaigner, standing up for disabled people’s right to equality, social justice and the right to be supported to live with dignity. She fought hard for what she believed in, was eloquent in her arguments, but also empathetic and incredibly kind to everyone who knew her. A loyal friend to me, I will miss her sense of humour and our banter. Sending love and best wishes to all Juliet’s friends and family. Catherine x

    I taught Juliet when she studied for her MA and it was clear from the second I met her that she was a force for good. ‘What a firecracker’ we used to say after the MA debating sessions she participated in. Juliet and Keith were my friends and I was deeply shocked to hear of her death. The world has undoubtedly lost one of the greatest advocates of human rights that I have had the privilege to know.
