Facts To Learn When Putting Together For A Funeral Notice

Burial preparations entail a lot of planning. When everything has been arranged, it is customary to make a public announcement to let friends and associates of the departed know the details surrounding the passing and services. These funeral notices will provide all the information people need if they wish to attend.

This announcement is different from an obituary. The obit is a shortened biography that is usually written by a member of a newspaper's staff according to a template. A notice is paid for, and written by the family, and contains more personalized information about the deceased's life and planned services.

Such announcements are typically posted in local papers but it is not uncommon for them to be made via personal invitations or emails. There are two main ways for them to be done. The simple form states name, location and time only, while the other choice is filled with personal information, details on all services and sometimes a photograph of the deceased.

Certain key bits of information should always be included in this announcement. This is usually the complete name of the deceased, including any common nicknames, as well as the maiden name if the deceased was a married female. Their place of residence, surviving family members, date of passing and all details of the services are also among the basic facts to be listed.

As an option, one may choose to include additional details regarding the death. It may also be nice to list personal bits about the deceased such as where they were born, schools they attended, place of employment, military service, religious or civic affiliation, and any hobbies or special interests they enjoyed. The officiant and pallbearers are also often announced here.

If services are to be for family only, this should be clearly noted in the announcement. When charitable donations are requested in lieu of flowers, that stipulation can be stated in this piece. Funeral notices are more than just a formal way to let others know of a passing, they are a way to honor the dead.
