How to place an obituary in Topeka Capital-Journal

Placing an Obituary

Obituraries can be submitted by an individual or through a funeral home or crematory.

An individual may submit an obituary by email ([email protected] ), brought into The Topeka Capital-Journal office in downtown Topeka at 100 SE 9th Street, Ste. 200, or faxed to 785-295-1287.

If you are not using a funeral home, please provide the mortuary or crematory service contact information for verification of death. Please include the date or dates that the obituary will run, along with your contact information (full name, phone number and address). We will contact you with a quote and full prepayment is required. There is a 3 PM deadline, including payment, to insert an obituary in the following day’s newspaper.

Including a photo with the obituary is encouraged.

● There is a base price of $50.00 (approximately 40 words). Additional words are $1.00 a word.
● Text can be attached to the email or placed into the body of the email.
● Small photos are $25 and large photos are $50. Photos need to be in jpeg format and attached to the email.
● Any obit emailed, called or brought into The Topeka Capital-Journal will incur a $25 processing fee.
