Sunderland Echo obituaries: How to access obituaries, celebrations and memories in our online announcements section

Helping you to share your family news has always been important to the Sunderland Echo team, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to continue to do so.

Our online announcements service is the easiest way for readers to share and view the notices that matter most to them, and their families. The online portal allows users to share happy and sad events from new arrivals, engagements, anniversaries and birthdays to the passing of loved ones, funeral arrangements and memorial notices.

The service features separate announcement and celebration tabs so you can search, enables you to upload your own photographs when you’re creating a notice and allows readers to leave a message in a virtual guest book.
