What You Have To Know When Composing Funeral Notice

Drafting funeral announcements can be a stressful affair for an individual who is grieving. Hard as it may be, it is necessary so as to inform the community about the passing away of the individual. There are some etiquette rules to be followed when writing these notices.

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.

Name any close surviving family members of the deceased. This normally includes nuclear family members and some members of the extended family. This is essential as someone reading the notice may be familiar with one of the named family members of the deceased.

Include the date of birth and the date of death. Provide a brief explanation for cause of death. Mention any burial arrangements that have been made so far. If arrangements have not been finalized, state that you will issue another notice with details about the memorial service.

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.
