Death notices and funeral announcements from across Cambridgeshire this week (2023)

Every week we lose important people in our community. It's not always possible for families to let everyone know about their sad loss, so we, alongside our partner website, publish death notices and funeral announcements from across the county every week.

The death notices also provide advice about funerals, fundraising and often include tributes to health staff and carers too. To see the full list of family announcements, you can visit this website which is operated by our partner funeral-notices.co.uk.

Here are the notices from this week (5 August-12 August). Our thoughts are with those who have recently lost a family member or friend in Cambridgeshire.
