How to Write a Funeral Service Program

The funeral service may be following the traditional path or is set for more of an unusual side, it is crucial for the people who are attending to be aware of when the most important elements of the ceremony are taking place. This is where the funeral order of service can help. The funeral program includes the essential information needed to the guests who will be attending the service. In a typical book form, the document outlines the sequence in which services will take place. The following list shows the manner in which the order will generally outline the services.
  • Introduction/Welcoming Words
  • Prayers or Opening Readyings
  • Music Selection/Hymns
  • The formal readings include the Obituary and the Formal Readings.
  • Moment of Silence
  • Eulogy or Life Tribute
  • Informal Tributes
  • Thank you and Acknowledgements
  • Viewing of the Deceased
  • Closing
It is standard to list that of the individual who conducts every part of the service to ensure that people can identify who the person they’re listening to is as well as what they are for the person who died. It is also commonplace to include musical selections as well as other details regarding the poems or scriptures that are being read to let people be aware of.

A front-page of the program for service may be as casual or as formal you prefer. The primary information you want to include on the front on an application for service will be the full name of the deceased as well as their birth date and death date and when the ceremony being drawn out, and a photograph of the deceased. In addition to the basics the first page of the order of service can be crafted or used in colours that you believe best reflect your deceased loved ones and how they’d like to be.

If you’re making arrangements with a priest or funeral director, they’ll be able to collaborate with to ensure that you include the most important points as well as any other information that you would want the people who will be attending the funeral to know in addition.
