  • Additional Information

The Need For Publishing Obituaries in Newspaper:

Even though with great access to connectivity through social media, it might be practically impossible to inform the big circle of your loved one the news of his/her departure. That is when obituaries help you. Newspaper obituaries are news articles reporting the recent death of a person and generally contain an account of the concerned person’s life and information about their upcoming funeral. Apart from informing everyone about the demise, obituaries also acknowledge the loss of your loved one.

The purpose of an obituary ad is to remember the memories with the person and expressing grief for the loss. Obituaries are categorized into two headings:

  • Death Notice: It is an announcement made by the family or the close ones in order to inform people about the demise. Since, it is just an announcement, the biographical details of the person is usually omitted.
  • Memorial Advertisement: This is an advertisement where the family informs about the event in remembrance of the death of a person. It can take place annually on his/her death anniversary and is written by the family or closed ones.


The different types of obituary ads you can book are:

  1. Classified-text ads: It is one of the most common as well as most trusted forms of publishing obituary ads. A straightforward and crisp advertisement that serves the purpose of informing people and is charged on the basis of the number of lines published.
  2. Classified Display Ads: A classified-display advertisement is the one where both the image and texts are used while publishing. They are more prominent and easy to understand the purpose of the advertisement. Rates for this advertisement is calculated per centimeter and both coloured and black and white options are available.
  3. Display Ads: As the name suggests, display ads mainly uses the pictorial form of an information, carefully designed and published in the form of an ad.
