- Obituary Policy
An obituary can be submitted via mail to The Rutland Herald Newsroom, PO Box 668, Rutland VT 05702-; fax (802) 773-0311; or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Our deadlines are 2 p.m. daily.
It is necessary for us to have a copy of the death certificate, or name/phone number of the funeral home, or other such authority, to verify the death.
We offer an edited version of an obituary for only a $15 online fee in which case we must have the age and/or birthdate of the deceased who must also have a strong connection with our readership area spelled out. This text can include birthdate, place and parents’ names; education facts; military service facts; marriage date, place and spouse’s name; employment facts; information about membership in organizations; hobbies and interests; survivors and those who predeceased; calling hours and funeral services; and memorial contributions. This edited version does exclude descriptive words and phrases, and it also does not name grandchildren, in-laws, nieces and nephews (unless they are next of kin), aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.
For a full guide on how to write this edited version, please see the article below or click here to go directly to the article.
We also offer a paid version which is published verbatim, edited only for obvious grammar, spelling or punctuation errors, and the rate is currently $17.25 per column inch ($18.25 for Sunday edition), which is equivalent to 27 words, plus the $15 online fee.
