How do I place a Death Notice or Obituary?

Paid Death Notices: 
You can phone in a death notice to 202-334-4122 or 800-753-4122 
Our Hours of Operations are:
Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-5p.m., (Deadline for next day notices is 4 p.m.)
Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., (Deadline for next day notices is 3 p.m.)
Send it by fax to 202-334-7188 or email us at deathnotices@washpost.com.

Faxed or email death notices must be received by 3 p.m. and must include billing information (name, address, home and daytime phone numbers, and a fax number if possible). Photographs can appear in a paid death notice and must be received no later than 2 p.m. the day prior to publication. You will be contacted to verify the cost of your notice before its final approval to run in the newspaper. 

Obituaries: 
If you have inquiries concerning news obituaries (the biographic articles written by The Post) please call News Obituaries at 202-334-6477 or e-mail us at newsobits@washpost.com. If you fax information to News Obituaries at 202-334-6553, please call the section after you have faxed your material. 
We will not be able to publish news obituaries more than a month after death, so we must receive your submission within that time period.
