Death Notice

A published notice announcing that someone has passed away, typically written by a family member.

Historically, these have been published in local newspapers, but today can also be posted on a Memorial Website.

It provides details about the Funeral or Memorial Service and explains how to support a surviving family.

In some cases, the term Death Notice and Obituary may be used interchangeably, but technically an Obituary is an article written by the staff of a newspaper describing the life of a person who has died.
