Pas d'eux

This is given as an alternative. Does it have any meaning/use?

Bonjour Chris,

'pas d'eux' = not of them (literally) - it is normally part of a bigger expression:

Je ne me souviens pas d'eux = I don't remember them

Ne t'occupe pas d'eux = don't mind them

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Your answer would suggest that the d'eux is put on the end of a negative statement including 'pas' to add the meaning  'of them' , rather than 'pas d'eux' existing on its own. Can it start a sentence?

Bonjour Chris,

Usually, no, it wouldn't be at the beginning of a sentence, unless you use it instead of answering by a full sentence (which is very familiar). 

Bonne journée !
