Rates: The Independent charges for obituaries using the following scale: 45 cents/word (including person’s name). $5/photo. Committal notices and in memoriam with accompanying photos will remain free of charge, using the editor’s discretion that the submission is an appropriate length.

Deadlines: Please email all notices to by Mondays at noon. We cannot guarantee placement of any obituary submitted on a Tuesday. Please include the funeral home's contact person and billing address.

Billing: Milton Independent staff will handle obituary placement in the paper, but billing will originate from the St. Albans Messenger, 281 North Main St., St. Albans, VT 05478. Contact Gail Wells with any billing questions at or 524-9771 ext. 117.
