Place an Obituary

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 $10/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

Payment can be made by Visa, MasterCard or Discover and must be paid by deadline.
