How to place an obituary

Funeral homes may place obituaries by going to www.memoriams.com. 

The Maryland Independent provides obituaries for a fee. Obituaries must be confirmed by a funeral home, crematory, funeral director, mortician, or state anatomy board. If a family is not using a funeral home, such as when the remains are donated to science or for other exceptional circumstances, obituaries may be submitted online by going to https://placement.memoriams.com/MarylandIndependent. The deadline to place an obituary is 11 a.m. Wednesday. For more information, call 1-877-242-1110 Monday through Friday between 9 a.m.-12 p.m. or email obits@chespub.com.

The Maryland Independent is now combined with the Calvert Recorder and Enterprise newspapers as Southern Maryland News, with distribution in Charles, St. Mary's, and Calvert County communities.
