About the obituary links

  • The Post links only to obituaries that appear on funeral home websites, and occasionally to websites of known and trusted providers. It does not accept privately submitted obituaries.
  • The Post does not write, edit, republish, or in any way alter any obituaries to which it links. The format, content, and copyrights of obituaries are owned, controlled, displayed at the websites of, and can be modified only by, their funeral home owner-publishers.
  • The Post does not charge any fees to link to obituaries. Its intent is to provide a newsworthy service to its readers and, more broadly, its communities.
