What To Notice When Considering Free-of-charge Obituaries

Publicly announcing an individual's death can be accomplished in several different manners. Some people take the private route of sending correspondence, but most choose the simple option of posting notices in newspapers and on websites. In most areas, the papers will run free obituaries.

Obits and death notices are not the same thing. The latter is a more personalized announcement of a person's passing, normally written by someone who knew the subject well, providing details about their life and loss. The former is a short summary of an individual's basic facts and details of their funeral arrangements, often written by someone not associated with the deceased.

Newspapers normally use a standard form when creating an obit. The article includes information such as the person's name, when and where they were born, the date of their passing, their place of residency, schools attended, jobs held and which family members survive them. For the most part, these posts are published at no cost to the submitter.

When a paper has the available space, they may offer people the option to be more specific and sentimental. This means being able to include additional details like how the individual passed away, their military service, organization and charitable affiliations, accomplishments and personality traits. There may be a small cost to add the extra information.

Some families opt to have the obit printed in the funeral programs passed out at services. Doing so gives each of the mourners their own copy to read or keep without having to clip it from the newspaper. The version from the papers may be used or a more personal rendition can be written to include more intimate details and special comments.

Announcements can be submitted to multiple newspapers, specifically those serving the cities where the deceased once resided. With this practice, people who knew them in those areas will be informed and able to send condolences or attend services. Whether to do this or not is left solely up to the immediate family of the one who has passed away.
