Funeral notices

Post by MamaMagoO? » Sun Dec 07, 2014 10:37 am

My best-friend-from-primary-school's dad died last week. I would like to go to the funeral as her parents were a big part of my life when I was young, although I haven't seen them in about 20 years or so. She told me when and were it was likely to be the other day but hasn't confirmed. I'm sure there must be someway I can look it up myself without having to buy a newspaper. Does anyone know where I can find funeral notices online?

Is the newspaper available online? Otherwise I *think* funeral directors sometimes publish an online list?? Maybe??

Depends on the paper - try OLSE searching by name and 'obituary'. Or check the website for your local paper, and find their obituaries section. In our paper it is called 'tributes and celebrations'.

I'm sorry to hear of your friend's loss - I think it would be a lovely gesture to go to the funeral.

Found it! Thanks for the suggestions. I found it by searching his name and funeral.

It is very sad. They are such a lovely family he will be very missed :cry:
