Place your Death Announcements with us for free here.
(plus of course Birth, Marriage and Anniversary announcements)
We publish the first Friday of every month – remember we are purely digital and NOT connected to any printed newspaper.
Are you looking to place an Announcement in the BV magazine? We took the decision to make all announcements free to insert – at a deep-rooted personal level it simply felt wrong to profit from a time of grief (and we’re therefore not going to profit from spreading the joy either).
Simply complete the form below
Placing a death announcement is never an easy task, but it can be a crucial step in informing the community about the passing of a loved one. When filling out the form, it is important to keep in mind a few key points.
Firstly, it is important to include the full name of the deceased, along with the date of passing. If you can add their date of birth too, the information ensures that readers can easily identify the individual being honoured and provide a sense of context around their life and legacy. It is also customary to include the age of the deceased at the time of passing, as well as their town or village of residence.
Secondly, perhaps include in the death announcement the names of surviving family members and any significant relationships, such as a spouse, children, or siblings. This information provides readers with a sense of the deceased’s family and loved ones, and can help to foster a sense of community and support during a difficult time.
Lastly, it is customary to include information about any services or memorials that may be held in honour of the deceased. This can include details about the funeral, wake, or memorial service, as well as any requests for donations or condolences.
Overall, placing a death announcement can be a challenging but important step in honouring the memory of a loved one and informing the community of their passing. By filling out the form below, you can ensure that the announcement accurately reflects the life and legacy of the individual being honoured, while also providing important information for those who may wish to pay their respects or offer support to the family.
