RIP.ie - UK website

Hi All,

do you know whether there is an equivalent UK website to rip.ie?

Thanks,

M.

Death is a lot different in England at least- much more of an immediate family thing. Not like here where it’s a whole wider community ritual.

I posted here about this site a few years ago and someone mentioned iannounce.co.uk for the UK but its probably not as good as rip.

Okay, that's a pity. It was worth a shot anyway.

Thanks all.

It is less common to put a newspaper notice about person's death. Funerals are more private affairs and attendance is by invitation.

I did know that they don't announce in the newspaper in the UK but never heard the funeral attendance is by invitation. Wasn't the case a few years back when I travelled to the UK for a funeral. I expect the funeral of a famous person may involve invitations though.

Even in Ireland, some deaths were announced in the newspapers,but marked funeral private.

Some may be private but not all. My mum went to her aunt's funeral in England recently and parishioners went to the funeral. Anyone who wanted to go was welcome. Things are done quite differently overall in England though.

I think religion plays a role here. Catholics in England of Irish background are more likely to have a funeral similar to Irish customs.
