Few Tips For Writing Funeral Announcements

Writing funeral announcements can be a challenge for most people as it is required at a time of intense grief. However, it is necessary to write a death notice so as to inform others of the passing away of your loved one. For the announcement to be useful to other people, you need to include some essential information.

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.

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.

You can provide details on when and where the deceased was born and when and how they died. You do not have to go into details. Include details of where and when the memorial service will be held. Specify if only close family members are allowed to attend the memorial service or other people can also attend the event.

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.
