Knowing ABC's 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 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.

Announcements are usually made through the newspaper but they may also be done through emails and physical invitations. There are two general templates to follow. They either state the basics like who, when and where or they provide a personalized biographical history occasionally partnered with a photograph.

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.

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.

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.
