If you have a photo for your obituary, you must drop it off at one of our offices. In addition, obituaries must be received by 10 a.m. Tuesday in order to be published in Thursday's edition of Mainline Newspapers. The cost is $42.00 for up to a 10-inch obituary. There is also a $6 charge for publishing a picture with an obituary.

Funeral homes which submit obituaries are billed for charges; however, obituaries submitted by individuals must be prepaid by cash, check or credit card (VISA or MasterCard).
