IMPORTANT NOTE #1: If you click on one of our sponsor's ads (and we sincerely hope you will), it may temporarily take you off of the Obit City website. All of our online obits are provided FREE of charge.

If someone is trying to charge you for obits, you have clicked an ad, and are NOT on the Obit City website.

IMPORTANT NOTE #2: SCROLL DOWN the page to see the free obit content. There are people out there who don't understand that the ads at the top of the page aren't the actual obituaries. Go figure.

This site is updated frequently with free obituaries. started with a tiny handful of free Arkansas obituaries. We later added obits from Louisiana and Mississippi. It has since expanded to include thousands of free obituaries from all 50 states.

We are now focusing our efforts on getting older, harder-to-find obits.

On Obit City, some states have more obits than others. It's fairly easy for us to get obits from certain states, but a bit more challenging to get them from others. Also, it takes considerable time to type up all those obits. Be patient. We're constantly adding new material to the site.

Thank you for visiting Obit City.
