Obituary Requests

We have an up-to-date index of all obituaries published in The StarPhoenix, beginning in 1934. Use the Saskatoon Obituary Index to find out when an obituary was published and on which page it appears. With this information, you will be able to find the obituary on microfilm.

Search Obituaries

Search for a copy of an archived obituary using the Saskatoon Obituary Index.

Recent obituaries are all also available at (from July 2003).

Can’t find it?

The Saskatoon Obituary Index does not cover dates before 1934. The Saskatoon Woodlawn Cemetery provides death and burial dates for those buried in their Cemetery. If an exact date of death and a name is provided, we can check microfilm near that date.

Note: It is up to the family of the deceased whether or not to place an obituary in the newspaper. If you can't find a name, the death notice may not have been published. 

How much does it cost?

The cost is $5 (CAD) per obituary. We accept debit, cash, money order or cheques made payable to Saskatoon Public Library.

You are more than welcome to come and use our microfilm reader, scanner or printer and make obituary copies in person. In-person print copies are $0.10. In-person scans are free of charge.

If you can't come to the library, we can email, mail or fax copies of obituaries to you.
