Write as much as you want. Most obituaries and death notices are under 200 words. A photo can be included. Please see examples below. If photo option has been selected while using this online form, you will be prompted to upload it at the end of the session. Otherwise, email the photo to us. Provide a HiRes color version of your photo if available. No need for you to adjust or size it. We will format everything appropriately for publication. Please proofread your text.

If sending the information by email, please include a daytime telephone number for us to contact you. Confirmation by us is required for obituaries not submitted by a funeral home. Provide contact information for the funeral home that handled the arrangements or fax a copy of the death certificate to (908) 232-0473.

Your obituary will appear in our next publication (Thursdays) and on the Internet thereafter based on receipt of all information by the Monday prior. If you have special dates or other requests, please call us. We can assist you.
