Your Herefordshire understands that losing a loved one is difficult enough, without the added financial strain.

That’s why we share funeral information and death notices free of charge.

To share funeral information or a death notice, simply email with a photo and a couple of paragraphs of information and we’ll schedule in a post.

We’ll publish a list of death / funeral notices on our website every Wednesday evening.
