Tributes to ‘adored’ teen and 104-year-old great-great-grandma in Gazette funeral notices

Tributes have been paid to a “fun-loving” teenage boy and a 104-year-old great-great-grandmother in this week’s Gazette death and funeral notices.

Announcing the passing of a loved one in The Gazette is a long-standing tradition and we are proud of the trust placed in us to make these important announcements. Every notice published remains online forever – providing friends and families with a lifelong tribute to their loved one, a safe place to share memories, add tributes, and photographs and make donations in memory.

Every notice published in our newspaper and news site also appears on – the UK’s number one site for death notices and memoriams. Each week, we pay tribute to the loved ones remembered in our area with a funeral notice and online tribute page. Here are a selection of notices published earlier this week.
