Place Obituary in The Plain Dealer

The Plain Dealer publishes information about deaths in two forms: death notices for which a fee is charged and obituaries prepared by reporters.

Death notices, which are paid advertisements, can be placed by sending a fax to 216-999-6350, an e-mail to, or by calling 216-999-4860 during the following hours: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, noon to 6 p.m.; Sunday, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

News obituaries, which are biographical sketches of the deceased, are prepared by reporters and published at the discretion of the editors. Preference is given to those submitted as soon as possible after the subject's death and before services are held.

To suggest a news obituary, email or send a fax to 216-515-2039. Please provide the date and place of death, the name of the funeral home and your contact information.
