Using our archives | Obituaries

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING

Full obituaries exist in our archives from 1996 to the present.

  • Obituaries for a particular day during this time period exist in two alphabetized lists. The links will read: "SOUTH CAROLINA OBITUARIES: A - L" or "SOUTH CAROLINA OBITUARIES: M - Y".
  • Only lists of the deceased are available from 1987 through 1995. If you find a match, but the date of death is during this time period, you cannot retrieve a full obituary.
  • We currently do not have archived obituaries prior to 1987.
