Basics To Learn When Putting Together For Funeral Notices Templates

When someone dies, there is a lot of work to do in preparation for their burial rites. Once arrangements have been made, an announcement is generally made to let those who were associated with the individual know of their passing. This is made by issuing formal funeral notices that provide the necessary information.

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.

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 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.
