The Funeral Notice
There are two ways to approach writing the funeral notice. Both
approaches are equally correct. Just consider what is right for you
and the person who has died.
1. You can provide the 'who, what, where and when', that is, only
the necessary facts.
2. You can provide an historical statement, a notice that many
will cut out from the paper and keep. In addition to the who, what,
where and when, this type of notice generally includes dates of
birth and death and all immediate family names and may be worded in
a way that reflects something of the essence of the person and the
relationship others had with them.
Remember that newspapers will only accept a funeral notice from
your funeral director.
