New research suggest British people are much less religious

According to a new research, there is a significant decline in religious faith among the people in the United Kingdom.

The research showed that British people no longer turn to God even during the times of death. The new study relating to the attitudesabout death and dying found that having spiritual needs is the least important thing. The study showed that among the list of options, only five per cent said that their religious or spiritual needs are a priority for them.

The participants in the study were asked to choose the most important factor in ensuring they had a "good death" and only 5 per cent said that religious or spiritual needs are important. On the other hand, 33 per cent said they would like to be "pain free" and 17 per cent said it was most important to have their friends and family with them. About one in seven said that retaining their dignity is the most important.

A total of 60 per cent said that religious or spiritual needs are the least important for them. The research carried out by "Dying Matters", which includes 16,000 hospices, charities, care homes and others working with people facing their end of life.

Claire Henry, Chief Executive of the Dying Matters Coalition said, "We need to change the nation's approach to dying, so that all of us become better at making our end of life wishes known and asking our loved ones about theirs."
