Changes made to obituary policy

January 10, 2012

When you pick up a paper this week, you may notice that this week’s obituaries look a bit different than usual. That’s because The Chieftain and Sentinel have a new policy for obituaries.

The classified advertising department of The World Company, parent company of The Chieftain and Sentinel, is now handling obituaries.

As a service to the community, the newspaper will publish obituaries free of charge for the first one-and-a-half column inches. Charges apply for additional column inches and photos.

For more information, call the Lawrence Journal-World at (800) 578-8748. Ask for “obituaries.”

Obituaries should be emailed to or faxed to (785) 832-7232. Deadline is 10 a.m. the Wednesday before publication.

Also as a service to the community, obituaries that appear in the newspaper will be published free of charge online at
