Obituary Announcement

  • Finish

All obituaries are paid announcements. You will be contacted by a Telegraph staff member by email with a price quote for the obituary prior to publication. The cost varies depending on the length of the obituary; for example, a 275-word obituary with a photo costs approximately $142. We'll be happy to work with you to craft an obituary to fit your budget. The North Platte Telegraph requires prepayment on obituaries - payment must be arranged when we contact you. Forms of payment accepted are: Visa, Discover, American Express or electronic check (we cannot accept Mastercard). Local parties may also come to the office and pay with cash or a check, during normal business hours. The North Platte Telegraph is required to verify the passing of the individual prior to publication. Please provide the name of the funeral home, crematory, anatomical board, etc., who assisted the family.

If you have any questions or concerns you may contact us by calling (308) 535-4733 or by emailing Online submissions received after 1 p.m. Monday-Friday, are not guaranteed placement in the next day’s edition. Obituaries submitted Saturday or Sunday will not be processed until Monday, for publication in Tuesday’s edition, provided normal deadlines are met. In the event of a holiday, submissions will be processed on the next business day.
