Obituary Template

Cost of publishing a photo in the Free Press comes to $148.58 plus GST. Text published comes to about the same amount for two inches of text. So, two inches of text and a photo come to approximately $300. We never charge our clients more than what it would cost for the family to handle the processing and publication on their own. We will provide you with a proof from the Winnipeg Free Press showing the photo/text as it will be published. The cost will also be indicated.


You are not required to complete ALL of the sections, complete only what you would like published.

IMPORTANT: Many families publish a simplified version in the Free Press but include a sentence pointing the reader to an extended version on our website which often includes a photo-biography set to music (usually 25-30 photos). The version on our website is provided at NO COST and the obituary can be of any length. CLICK HERE  for an example of a tribute page if you'd like to have a look at one. 

This hybrid approach reduces costs significantly and allows the family to provide a permanent, interactive, and fitting tribute without concern over costs. Feel free to speak with our staff if you would like more information.
