Q.  How do I place a notice in the Newspaper

Funeraltimes.com is an independent online portal for funeral directors to place death notices and for members of the public to add sympathy/condolence notices. To place an advert in the Newspaper you need to contact them directly. Telephone numbers you may find useful are:

Q.  Why can I not see the condolence message I have just placed?

Because of the sensitivities involved, all sympathy notices placed on the site are passed through a moderation process. As soon as the message is moderated it will appear on the site.

Q.  Leaving your Sympathy/Condolence message

You can leave a condolence/sympathy message on FuneralTimes.com by simply clicking on the ‘Leave a Condolence’ button which appears at the bottom of all Death Notices (this is where your message will appear). The message will be displayed with the death notice and viewable as long as the death notice remains on FuneralTimes.com. There is a one off charge of £14 to leave your notice regardless of the length of your message.
