Death notice and obituary submission guidelines

• To place a death notice, call 410-539-7700..

• For obituaries, call The Sun newsroom at 410-332-6536 or 410-332-6570.


  • Because of limited space and the large number of requests for obituaries, The Sun regrets that it cannot publish all the obituaries it receives. Because The Sun regards obituaries as news, we give a preference to those submitted within 48 hours of a person's death. It is also our intention to run obituaries no later than seven days after death.
  • This section contains both obituaries and death notices. Obituaries are articles written by reporters, and usually found in the Maryland section of The Sun. Death Notices are paid classified ads, usually placed by funeral homes, that note the individual's passing and contain details of services and viewing times, among other information. Because there is an additional charge, all death notices from The Sun may not be available online. We regret any inconvenience this causes.
