It is FREE to add a Death Notice/Obituary to HonourThem.
Start by completing the ‘Add Obituary’ form online.
When completing the form, please include your full name and phone number. We may need to call and ask you a question.
HonourThem requires proof of death if an Obituary is submitted by anyone other than a funeral home.
- If you are an immediate family member and wish to submit an Obituary to be published, then please provide a scanned copy of the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death (also known as a death certificate).
- Note: If your Obituary has previously been published in a newspaper in New Zealand, you are not required to send this to us. Please send the website link to the published obituary in the newspaper.
- New Zealand funeral homes do not need to attach the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death (at this stage, funeral homes from outside of New Zealand do need to attach the death certificate).
All Obituaries are verified prior to being published. The Obituary notice (including images) will not be published until moderated and verified.
The quickest way to publish an Obituary on HonourThem is to ask your funeral home to do this on your behalf.
We only accept Medical Certificates of Cause of Death/Death Certificates in the English language.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
