Obituaries

Excellent obituaries are published daily in The Telegraph
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries

There is a paywall but it doesn't come into effect until you have looked at a number of articles - do not recall how many but it is large enough not to be a serious obstacle.

One interesting obituary is
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/1573717/Hugh-Massingberd.html

excerpt:

"It was as obituaries editor of The Daily Telegraph from 1986 to 1994 that he found the perfect fulfilment for his gifts. First, though, he had to reinvent the whole concept of the form, substituting for the grave and ceremonious tribute the sparkling celebration of life."

Worth a look.
