How to submit an obituary

Always check with the funeral home first. Many funeral homes provide basic information and will write the full obituary for you as part of the services they provide.

Obituaries are a paid feature of the Galveston County Daily News. Cost is based on the length of the obituary. Once received, we will provide a proof and quote.

The deadline to submit an obituary is 12 noon for the following day's edition. They MUST be e-mailed in a ‘Word document’ format EXACTLY as you wish to have published. All photos must be in JPG format with a 300 DPI resolution.

You are urged to ensure the information is accurate and spelled correctly as The Daily News assumes no responsibility for inaccurate information provided to us.

Verification of death is required (death certificate) OR name and phone number of the funeral home or crematory. Without verification, we cannot publish.

Prepayment is required and we accept all major credit cards. Fore more information, call 409-683-5308 or e-mail:
