Funeral Order Of Service Ideas Purposes

Memorial events are commonly filled with a lot of emotion as people say farewell to a dear friend. It can be difficult for attendees to understand the proceedings without some type of guide. Having a funeral order of service program printed and ready to hand out to guests can make everything much simpler.

There are multiple purposes for this item, the foremost being as a way to let everyone know what to expect. It is a step by step listing of what is scheduled to occur during the event. This item also provides information about the songs, poems, passages and speakers used during the proceedings.

The front of the program is where a favorite photo of the deceased is placed. Below the picture should be printed the honoree's full name, their dates of birth and death, followed by the place and the time the event will take place. The top of the page typically has a memorial caption.

The inside is used as a forum to provide a complete listing of each step of the program from the welcome to the dismissal. This is a great way to make sure all guests, especially those who may not have a familiarity with such events, know what is planned to happen. Because emotions sometimes run high, it also serves to keep things flowing on schedule.

Some commonly used elements for memorial events are songs or hymns and literary passages or verses that were special to the deceased. Having them listed in the program lets all the guests know what the tribute pieces are. One should always take care to ensure that every piece is properly titled and that credit is given to the composer, author and presenter of each.

The funeral order of service is a useful way to make everyone aware of what will be happening during the memorial event. It makes even those who are not well versed in the subject feel included. Those who choose to keep tokens for memory boxes or scrapbooks often find these items to be perfect for such a purpose.
