Family messages

Please ONLY send family messages via email:

We do not charge for family messages but instead, for each message submitted, we request a charity donation, which this year will be for Dorothy House.

Each year, we will publish the total raised by our readers and messages we receive through local funeral directors.  When emailing a family message to us, please also send your donation for  Dorothy House online via

Photographs are also welcome to accompany any message with a £7.50 donation per image, with wedding photographs free.

For any family messages supplied through a funeral director, we charge the funeral director £25 +VAT or £35 +VAT for messages with a photograph.

All messages will be published at our discretion and subject to available space.
