How to Place an Obituary

Richmond News policy asks that obituary information be provided by the funeral home or mortuary and requires the name and phone number of the mortuary for death verification before publication.

Death notices – which include name, age, hometown, date of death, visitation and funeral services – are published free of charge in the print edition of the Richmond News. All obituaries are also published on the Richmond News Web site and are recorded on the newspaper’s obituary hotline (816-776-5456). An expanded obituary with additional personal and family information and/or photo is available for a nominal fee. Contact the newspaper at 816-776-5454 for pricing.

Deadlines are 10 a.m. Monday and Thursday for the Monday and Thursday afternoon print editions.
