At most funerals or memorial services, you will receive a program (also known as an 'Order of Service'). This is a booklet that is filled with details about the ceremony, to effortlessly guide attendees through the service.

Here is our step-by-step guide to creating a memorial service program:

Decide Your Wording

The cover should include the key details about the person who has passed away. This would include their full name, their date of birth and death, and the time, date and location of their funeral or memorial service.

Inside, you would then include all of the events that will be taking place at the service. This would usually include details of the music, readings, hymns, and poems.

Choose a Photo or Design

Next, find a design that you love! You want something that sums up the personality of the deceased, that is also really sophisticated and thoughtful.

You may also wish to include a photo of your loved one. This will turn your programs into even more meaningful keepsakes, and reminds everyone of your loved one's beautiful smile.

Get a Second Opinion

Before you send your programs to be sent, be sure to get a second opinion from a close friend or family member.

You want to make sure that you have chosen a suitable design, and that you haven't made any spelling or grammar mistakes.
