Obituary Policy

The Greenwich Sentinel publishes obituaries at no charge. We do, however, edit them to conform to our standards and style.

An obituary acknowledges loss and celebrates the joy of a person’s life and the gift of having known them as a part of our lives. It enlists the community, whose support is needed and appreciated.

If you would like more guidance, please click here, Obituary Submissions, for a guide to preparing a remembrance.

Please send obituaries to The Editor, Greenwich Sentinel, 1 River Road, Cos Cob, CT 06807, go to, or e-mail them to

Be sure to provide the name and phone number of a family member, so that we can call to clarify information or request further details. We ask also that you include the name and contact information of the designated funeral home.
