It is possible that the British Library may hold a copy of the local paper containing any relevant notice/report. If you provide them with possible titles and a time frame, they will conduct a 30 minute free of charge. They will then offer you the opportunity to purchase a copy of any item. I obtained a copy of a funeral report for about 10.
