This site is a tribute to our son Felix Murdin, who was born in Cambridge on February 15, 1997. He died on March 9th 2017 at the age of 20. He is much loved and will always be remembered.
Felix was in his first year at the University of Leicester, where he was pursuing a degree in Film Studies and Visual Arts. He was a keen member of the University Theatrical Society, and had been in Shakespeare's Anthony and Cleopatra in the Autumn Term. He was due to be in the musical "The Producers" by Mel Brooks this Spring but died just before the show opened.
Felix had epilepsy, and was on medication, but died suddenly and unexpectedly. The Coroner put his death down to SUDEP - Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy - something which is little understood.
The charity SUDEP Action is working to aid research to prevent more deaths. You can find out more about their work by clicking on the link at the bottom left hand corner of this page. You can also read about Felix on this website, and how we celebrated his life, and donate if you wish to.
