Obituary changes in the works.
The Register-Guard has a new obituary policy.
The heart of the policy remains unchanged: The newspaper recognizes obituaries as significant community news and will continue to publish obituaries about current and former residents of the newspaper's circulation area.
News obituaries will be more concise under the new policy, but will continue to include important information about the life of the deceased. Photographs will no longer be included in news obituaries.
Several options are available for those wishing to purchase space for photos and additional information about the life of the deceased in a personalized obituary advertisement.
The new policy officially took effect Sunday at 1:30 p.m. Obituaries submitted after that time will be handled under the new policy. Obituaries submitted before the new policy's effective date will be published in the longer form, with photographs.
To request a news obituary, call 338-2361. For more information about personalized obituary advertisements, call 683-7612.
