Basic Details To Know When Putting Together For Funeral Notices

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 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.

Further details of their passing may be included if desired. Adding personal information such as the person's hometown, where they were educated, places they've worked, whether they were military, their religious preferences, civic activities, hobbies and interests may be appreciated by others. It may also be prudent to identify the service officiant and chosen pallbearers.

If the services are to be a private family affair, this should be mentioned in the article. In circumstances where donations for charity are preferred instead of flowers, details need to be part of the announcement. Funeral notices are both a way to share information about the memorial services and to show final respects to the dearly departed.
