How do I submit an obituary?

What are the latest death lists and are they different from classified obituaries? The latest deaths report is provided as a public service. Information for this list is only accepted from funeral directors and representatives of crematoriums and memorial societies, who may call 412-263-1601 from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

A name on the latest deaths report that is followed by a "CO" indicates that a Classified Obituary has been published for that individual.
