There are no words for those whom we have loved and lost but despite the heartache and pain, they continue to live on in our memories. That is why each week friends and family members can pay tribute to their loved ones.
Some of these tributes are sent to the Bristol Post to be publicly shared on the pages of the newspaper and online, in the form of death and funeral notices. These messages are a way to remember and reflect on the treasured moments of those who are no longer with us.
Below are the funeral announcements in the Bristol area from April 1 to April 8. Anyone who wishes to send a tribute to a relative or friend, find out funeral details or leave donations in memory of any of the people featured in the following list, can visit the Funeral Notices website and search for Bristol Post.
