This page will display the latest Death and Funeral Notices of RFPA Members and others when the RFPA Secretary receives them.
Please be aware that we receive Vale information from many sources, including Police Protocol, family, RFPA colleagues and friends of the deceased. We DO NOT receive Vale notices about ALL Police deaths and not all notifications are about RFPA Members for whom we have membership details. But as a service to our RFPA Members, we also post Vale information about non-members if we receive it. In either case, we can only post when we receive and confirm the information. Therefore, in some instances, funerals and other events may have already been held.
