Invitations For Memorial Service


Etiquette For Creating Announcements Of Funeral

When writing funeral announcements, you need to follow the right format. This is to ensure that you pass across the right information to the affected parties. There are certain things which should be included in the notice.

Provide a photo of the deceased person. This will help people to easily identify him. Then provide other identification details. This includes their name, nickname, if applicable, and any official titles they held. If the deceased was a married woman, remember to include her maiden name too. State where the person worked and where they lived.

List the deceased's close family members. This includes the name of their spouse, children or great grandchildren, if any. If they were married before and later divorced, you can include names of their former spouses. Include the names of the parents if the deceased had no spouse or children.

State when the deceased was born and the date they died. You can briefly mention the cause of death, without going into too much detail. If the details of the memorial service have been finalized, clearly state them. If the details are yet to be finalized, let the people know that you will post another notice at a later date providing the required details.

Let people know if they can give contributions or make donations. The donations can be directed at family members or a specified charity. Always try and issue a written notice rather than try to dictate the details to someone else over the phone to compile the notice. Keep the notice succinct and to the point.

Decide what tone to use. You can provide an official or unofficial notice. If the notice will be placed in the newspaper, try and be official. If you are planning to email the notice to close family and friends, then an unofficial tone is permissible. Funeral announcements can also be made over electronic media such as TV and radio stations.
