What You Must Know When Writing Funeral Service Announcements

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.

Include details of the deceased person. This includes their full name and any nickname they may have been popularly known by. If the person was a married woman, include their maiden name. You can also include their place of employment and place of residence. Also post a picture of the deceased.

Include names of the surviving family members. You can mention if the deceased was married and had children, siblings and grandchildren. This is important as someone may be acquainted with one of the family members that is mentioned. If the person was not married, include the names of his parents as next of kin.

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.

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.
