I am very keen to ensure that any notification on this web site would meet the wishes of the deceased's family, but it is not always possible or appropriate for me to contact them. On the other hand I am aware that many ex-colleagues would like to know of the news. So, the policy of this web site is to list the name of the deceased below and, if appropriate, provide further information. Due to the sensitivity of this issue, please let me know if any changes are required.
Announcements prior to 2016 appear on the page accessed by this link.
The date of death is approximate in some cases. The most recent is listed first.
Each date is followed by the name of the deceased and relevant information. Links lead to more information in some cases.
