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 email@example.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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
