I have had a response from Jenni, who has passed my comment up the line.
I don't mind if my death is posted as irreverent e.g. (Solly has popped his clogs, left nothing of value, spent all his money. The funeral will be in his back garden. Bring a spade or a log for the funeral pyre. If you are coming, bring some sarnies and a bottle of beer.), but I just though that "Death Notice" was a disrespectful way of announcing the event with regards to family and relatives.
Bob, I don't see anything wrong with John's note to you. The first line was for your eyes only, and the announcement, although brief, was respectful.
