The Gloucester-Mathews Gazette-Journal offers free and paid obits.
A free obituary consists of name, age, address of the deceased. It includes memberships of church/civic organizations; employment or retirement. Survivors include wife/husband, children’s names, siblings, and number of grand and great-grandchildren. Visitation and service times and place of burial are listed. Memorial contributions may be made to … and include what funeral home is in charge. The free obit can also include a recent picture of the deceased.
With a paid obit we charge $11/column inch. The paid obit is more descriptive of the deceased and includes in-laws and grandchildren/great-grandchildren by name; names of pets can also be included. Pictures are an additional $20/each; some include pictures when the deceased was young and current day.
Deadline for obits is 10 a.m. each Wednesday. Email obits to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a contact phone number.
Payment can be made by Visa, MasterCard or Discover and must be paid by deadline.
