Death notice/obituaries
« on: Friday 28 July 17 14:40 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find the death notice/obituary for Arthur F Bines who died on 9th March 2016 and was cremated on 6th April 2016, at Gorleston, Norfolk.  I have had no luck with the Great Yarmouth newspapers, but Arthur F Bines, lived for many years in Lowestoft and wondered if there might be a notice of his death in one of their newspapers.  Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Not everyone puts notices in papers these days - we didn't for my father, so there may not be one. Have you tried contacting all the local papers as it isn't that long ago?

I am beginning to think there may not have been a notice.

Thanks, I didn't realise I could search papers from other areas.  Forgive an old wrinkly.
