We publish full obituaries for OBMs and former staff in our annual alumni magazine, Eagle News. However, in the time between issues we understand that members of our community would like to be informed of the passing of those whom they knew at the School, and so we have decided to share this news in a more timely fashion on the OBM and BMS Community Network, before it is printed in full in Eagle News. We understand also that some family or friends may feel unable to write an obituary for their loved one, but would still like to share the news of their passing.

If you wish to submit an obituary for an issue of Eagle News, please email us on
