Every week, the Knutsford Guardian publishes death notices and funeral announcements from the families of loved ones who have died.

As well as appearing in print, our death notice pages will remain online as a lasting tribute to the memory of those we have lost.

Anyone who wishes to send their own message of condolence can do so by visiting the deceased's death notice page.

Here are the most recent notices placed in the Knutsford Guardian:

Janette left a tribute to John: "John left us too soon, and so suddenly that there was no chance to say a proper goodbye.
