Etiquette For Creating Funeral Service Announcements

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 personal information about the person. Clearly state their full name and any titles they held. If they were popularly known by their nickname, include this also. If the deceased was a married woman, state their maiden name too. Though optional, you can provide details on where the person worked or where they lived. Include a photo of the person.

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.

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.

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.

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.
