Obituary Searches

Library staff can perform an obituary search in the local newspaper if provided a name and an exact date of death. Note that not all deaths are mentioned in the newspaper, in either obituaries or death notices. Obituaries are submitted (and paid for) by surviving family members (or other associates of the deceased) at their own discretion.

Please Note: Special Collections has a standard charge of $10 for obituary searches. This charge includes up to 10 pages of copies. If the number of copies exceeds 10 pages additional charges will apply. There is no charge to conduct research in person, aside from any associated printing or publishing costs.

Please contact the librarian either by phone, e-mail, or fill out the form below to submit a request for an obituary. You do not need a Haverhill Public Library card to submit a request.
