Derry Obituary Index

This is a searchable index that can be used to determine whether an obituary exists for a person and find the specific date of printing. It does not provide images or text of the obituaries themselves. For further information you will need to visit the library and access the obituary in our microfilm holdings, or visit our digital collection of Derry News Archives HERE. You can also email, call, or mail us (charges apply for printing and mailing of obituaries). All obituaries are taken from the Derry News.

The index currently lists obituaries printed in the Derry News from about 1880 to the present. We add to the index on a regular basis.
