Submit Obituaries

The Bismarck Tribune runs two types of obituaries. A paid and a free version. A paid obituary is $12 per column inch. It can include just about anything, including a black and white photo. For an additional $15, you can run the photo in full color. There is also a $5 setup fee and for this the family receives 10 copies of the newspaper. (For example: When measuring the column, if it were eight inches, the total cost would be $101.00 — $12 x 8, plus the $5 fee). If you would like to run the obituary more than once, the fees are as follows: second run, $8 per inch; and third run, $6 per inch. Paid notices are charged at $12 per inch and can include any kind of information. If you want the paid obituary or notice, we can call with the exact amount after publication. E-mail address is obits@bismarcktribune.com. Photos should be attached as jpg files. Please include a billing address and a day-time phone number in case there are questions. A free obituary would include the person’s name, age, hometown, if they are formerly from this area, when and where they died, when and where services and burial are (even if they are past) and a list of the immediate family survivors which includes spouse, parents, brothers, sisters, children, grandparents, and where they are from, and the number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren; but would not list in-laws or other relatives. Free notices include person’s name, age, hometown, if they are formerly from this area, when and where they died and when and where services are. No visitation is included.
