Obituaries are a way to announce the passing of a loved one and to honor their lives. Obituaries have been appearing in newspapers for hundreds of years, but that may not be the most effective way to remember your loved one’s passing.
Online obituaries are becoming increasingly more popular for a variety of reasons. While newspaper obituaries only appear for one day, online obituaries can stay online for as long as the family would like. They can be shared with friends and family across the world easily and can be accessed anytime and any place. An online obituary can also help spread the word to friends and family about service times, dates, and the location of the service.
Traditional newspaper obituaries are quite expensive. On average they cost around $300, but some obituaries can end up being more than $600. Chapel of the Chimes provides online obituaries free of charge because we realize there are plenty of other unexpected expenses when a loved one passes.
Online obituaries can include many features that are impossible with newspaper obituaries including:
- Multiple photos
- Messages from family and friends
- Ability to send flowers at the click of a button
- And much more
