How to place an obituary in Press-Telegram

The Long Beach Press-Telegram strives to provide the best customer service experience, so we ask that when you submit an obituary, please include your name, address and phone number and we can provide you with a cost estimate and proof of the obituary normally within 1 hour of receiving it (M-F, 8:30 – 5:30).

To submit an obituary, please contact the Long Beach Press-Telegram Obituary Office at (562) 499-1392, or send an email to, or send a fax to (562) 499-1391. You may also submit an obituary in person at our office located at Press-Telegram/Daily Breeze, 21250 Hawthorne Blvd., #170, Torrance, CA 90503.

Pricing Information:
Obituaries start at approximately $350 per day. The quote can be with or without a photo. The easiest way to get an exact cost for an obituary is to e-mail the obituary to our office; we will format the obituary and provide you with a cost estimate.

We are now offering color photos with obituaries but cannot guarantee color placement on specific days. If you would like to submit a color photo for publication, we will make every effort to make sure it prints in color; otherwise the photo will be in our standard black and white format.

Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Our email and fax are available 24 hrs.
