Obituary Form

Obituary Policy: The News-Leader strives to make this list a complete record of deaths involving Nassau County residents and their families. Please ask your funeral home or cremation society to email or fax us with all death notices. The death notice listings are free and include the deceased’s name, age, date of death, town/city, service date and time and name of funeral home or cremation society handling the arrangements. For a paid detailed obituary, the fee is $65, plus $10 if you would like to include a photo. Please have your funeral home email the information to our copy editor at or fax to 904-261-3698, or families may fill out and submit the form below. For both paid obituaries and free funeral notices, proof of death can be a statement from a funeral home on its letterhead stating it is handling arrangements, an invoice from a funeral home, publication in another newspaper, or a death certificate. Deadline for death notices and obituaries is noon Tuesday and noon Thursday for the next day’s publication. For additional information call (904) 261-3696.

Photos may be included and should be sent in a jpg format at a minimum of 225 dpi resolution. Black and white or color photos can be used, providing the picture is of good quality and not too small. 

Please include only the most outstanding or notable achievements (or "high points") in the life of the person for whom the obituary is being written since space is limited.
