Only obituaries that are 75 words or fewer are free of charge. This is just a few sentences and includes basic information about the person and service information.
Longer obituaries will be charged based on word count. If you fill out more than the first few boxes in this form, the obituary is likely no longer free. The average obituary — with birth and death information, service information, some detail about a person’s life and a list of survivors — typically costs between $100 and $150, and that includes a photo.
If you have a budget you’re trying to meet, please put that figure in the last block of the form as other pertinent information.
