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.

The Order of Service

The order of service can be very simple or more involved. Your funeral director can arrange prompt preparation of the service sheet. However, allow yourself time to gather the information and then proof read the draft before it is printed.
