Tributes and death notices have been pouring in this week for those who have passed away in the South Lakes region.

Friends, family and loved ones have been sharing their memories and condolences of loved ones recently lost.

The Westmorland Gazette published 14 death notices last week - every day, the paper publishes death notices and funeral announcements from the families of loved ones who have passed away.

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.
