How to submit an obituary

Most obituaries in The Herald-Palladium are submitted by funeral homes. However, families wishing to submit an obituary on their own can do so. All deaths must be verified, so you will need to include the name and location of the funeral home or crematory that handled the arrangements. You can submit your obituary with this form, or if you already have something typed, you can email it directly to obits@TheHP.com. After the obituary is formatted in Associated Press style, someone will contact you with a quote. If you are satisfied with the proof and the price, the clerk will take credit card information over the phone. Obituaries coming from family members must be paid for prior to appearing in the paper. The deadline for proofing and payment is 4 p.m. Monday through Friday for the following day's paper. Please note, the obituary desk is manned every day until 4:30 p.m. ET. Obituaries submitted after 4 p.m. will not be processed until the following day. Obituaries vary in cost, depending on length. Pricing is based on number of characters used. Photos are an additional cost, but flag icons for veterans are free. For help, or more information, call the obituary desk at 269-429-2295.

If more than one person is in the photo, please make clear which person is the deceased.
