Knowing The Facts Of 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 is not the same thing as an obituary. That condensed biography of the person who has died is generally written by a newspaper staffer and follows a specific formula. The notice, however, is a paid submission created by the family which contains information regarding the individual as well as the services planned in their honor.

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.

If the family chooses, additional details about the cause of death may be included as well. Listing the deceased's place of birth, schools attended, employment, religious affiliation, civic organizations, military service, special interests and hobbies help others to identify with the individual. Some even opt to acknowledge the pallbearers and officiant.

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.
