What You Need To Know When Composing Funeral 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.

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.

Inform people on whether charitable contributions can be made. You can also request for donations to be sent to your favorite charity organization. It is advisable that you write down the notice, rather than try to give out information over the phone. Also, avoid lengthy notices as space is often limited and some words may have to be cut out.

Funeral announcements can be written in either a formal or informal tone. You can have the notice published in the obituary section of your local newspaper. Alternatively, you can write a simple notice and send it to friends and family members through email. You can also have it broadcast on radio.
