What You Should Expect When Putting Together For A Funeral Notice Template

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.

These announcements can be made as a newspaper submission, through emails or as actual invitations. The written format will usually follow one of two standard profiles. The first consists of only the basic facts regarding the who, where and when, while the second is a more personal tribute which is sometimes accompanied by a photograph and contains a brief biographical history.

Certain information is considered standard for such announcements. The primary detail being the individual's full name, as well as commonly used nicknames and, if applicable, a maiden name. The piece may also include where they lived, the date they died, the family they leave behind and the when and where of all services to be held in their honor.

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.

When the family wishes to have private services, it should be stated in the announcement. The same is true for those requesting that donations be made to a specific charity rather than having flowers sent. Funeral notices can simultaneously pay homage to the deceased and inform the masses of the loss.
