2021 publishing and deadline dates

Notices for bank holiday period editions of each Gazette should be submitted as per the dates stated below. These dates apply to notices submitted manually during bank holidays in England and Wales.

Late notices and withdrawals will be accepted at the discretion of the editor. Please contact The Gazette customer services team with any queries.

  • Self-serve submissions can be submitted to www.thegazette.co.uk at any time during bank holiday periods by organisations that have completed the registration and approval process. 
  • Registered and approved organisations are not subject to the publishing deadlines below. 
  • New organisation notice placers can only be approved by The Gazette customer services team during normal business hours.

If you are submitting a deceased estates notice over a bank holiday period, please be aware that supporting documents will be checked when The Gazette offices reopen, and if necessary, we will change the claims date of the notice to the statutory claims period, in line with the publication date of the notice.
