Mirror has new obituaries policy

January 10, 2012

Though this week’s edition of The Mirror does not contain any obituaries, you may notice that future obituaries will look a bit different than usual. That’s because The Mirror has a new policy for obituaries.

The classified advertising department of The World Company, parent company of The Mirror, 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 5 p.m. the Monday before publication.

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