If you are working with a mortuary, placing the obituary is usually part of their service to you.
In that case, the mortuary would receive the bill for the obituary and they will add it to the total cost of the funeral.
If you wish to submit the obituary as a private party, use the form below to place an Obituary Notice or In Memoriam Ad. This form may also be used by funeral homes to submit obituaries.
Obituaries and In Memoriam Ads are published in the World Herald 7 days a week with morning delivery to all subscribers.

Monday through Saturday: $ 8.25 per line per day
Sunday: $ 9.85 per line per day

Top Line/Name Line is a larger font that will bill out at 2 lines.
All Obituaries are uploaded to our website,, regardless of the number of days in print and hosted indefinitely.
There is a required flat fee of $125 in addition to the print lineage.

All Obituary Notices must be verified before publication.
The World Herald Obituary Staff is required to confirm all deaths with a funeral home or crematory prior to publication.
