A study of the awareness of the universality and irrevocability of death held by children aged 4 through 10 years was conducted. Results showed a wide distribution across the age groups in terms of the universality of death. Evidence indicates that the awareness of death as universal is a function of age; the understanding of death as irrevocable was not demonstrated systematically through age 10.
