The Hull Times publishes obituaries for a $50 fee. A photograph may accompany an obituary.
A funeral home will email us a copy of an obituary and accompanying photograph at the family’s request, but they may charge a fee for this service. A family member may submit an obituary to the newspaper directly. We will edit it according to our guidelines for spelling and clarity, if necessary.
