What You Have To Know When Writing Announcements Of Funeral Service

Drafting funeral announcements can be a stressful affair for an individual who is grieving. Hard as it may be, it is necessary so as to inform the community about the passing away of the individual. There are some etiquette rules to be followed when writing these notices.

Provide personal information about the person. Clearly state their full name and any titles they held. If they were popularly known by their nickname, include this also. If the deceased was a married woman, state their maiden name too. Though optional, you can provide details on where the person worked or where they lived. Include a photo of the person.

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.

If you would like people to make a financial contribution or any other contribution, please state so. If you would rather have them make donations in honor of your loved one, direct them to a charity of your choice. Keep the notice as short as possible since there are usually space restrictions when publishing in media obituaries.

You can go for a formal or informal tone when writing your notice. This depends on the circumstances and personality of the deceased. For funeral announcements that are published in newspapers, a formal tine would be more appropriate. If you are sending out the notices through email, an informal tone can work just as well.
