Obituary Writing

Has someone close to you died recently?
Let's get started

An obituary is a permanent record documenting the life of someone who passed away. Historically, an obituary was written by the local newspaper. More recently, the job is usually performed by someone in the deceased’s immediate family. It’s never an easy thing to write.

Journalists follow a specific style when writing obituaries. Some of the common mistakes made when writing an obituary include:

  • Confusing an obituary with a eulogy
  • Leaving important information out of the obituary
  • Putting in too many details
  • Including the wrong kind of information.
