*We do not accept submissions over the phone.
We accept obituaries from funeral homes, family members and friends. However, those submitted by non-funeral directors MUST be verified by a death certificate, or by a funeral home or cremation service. When submitting, please provide your name, telephone number and address, as well as a death certificate or contact information for the funeral home or cremation service handling the arrangements. All information must be provided in order to continue with publication.
Charges for obituaries will be provided after submission and review by our staff. Out-of-state funeral homes and private party submissions will require credit card payment before the obituary will be printed. Please contact us directly for pricing.
Obituaries run in all Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram editions. A featured obituary passage is chosen each day at no extra charge. This will run in addition to the paid obituary and will be selected and written by our editorial staff.
"Services and Calling Hours" are provided at no charge, whether or not an obituary is purchased.
Hours of Operation are:
Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Sunday 1 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Everything, including the payment, must be received by 3 P.m. for the next day’s publication.
