Obituary Request Form

While the library is closed to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Obituary Requests are temporarily unavailable.

Once you’ve found the obituaries you are looking for, follow these steps:

  1. Copy the catalog listing from the Obituary Index
  2. Paste the catalog listing in one of the online request forms below
  3. Submit up to 10 names per request
  4. Add your contact information
  5. Submit the form

Once you’ve submitted the form, you will receive a reply to your request and follow up by a member of our staff.

You can also submit requests via USPS mail

If you cannot find the person of interest in our index, use the form below to send us the name and the day, month and year of death and we will search our microfilm records.

This service is free to all Kansas residents.

Fees for out-of-state requests
  • If you live outside Kansas, there is a $5 fee for each obituary.
  • There is a $25 research fee if it’s not in the index and we have to look up the obit for you.

We must receive your mailed payment before we search for the obituaries. We will email instructions after we’ve received your request.
