Are Obituaries Expensive?


No Obituaries are not expensive, they are the most cost-effective way to notify a large number of people in a short amount of time. The Calgary Herald is circulated to over half a million readers, that means that a $1,000 obituary is less than a penny per reader. As with most things in life what is expensive to some is of great value to others. It is recommended that before cutting back, start by telling the whole story quotes are always provided prior to being published and often the amazing story told in the Biography may only add 15% to the cost and most families see the value and end up including this.
