It can be difficult knowing what to put in a thank you card after the funeral or death of one of your loved ones.

We are here to help! Here are some wording examples to thank funeral guests for their attendance at the funeral, for flowers, charity donations, or gifts.

For their Attendance

Saying thank you to someone for attending a funeral isn't necessary, but if you do want to show your appreciation then a card is a great way.

"Thank you for attending [name]'s funeral."

"It was lovely to see you at [name]'s funeral. You were a wonderful friend to her and I know she would want us to thank you for your support."

"Thank you so much for attending [name]'s funeral – we know you had to travel a long way and we are so grateful that you could make it."

For Funeral Flowers

Many people bring flowers to a funeral, so thank them with a lovely personalised card! Here are some wording examples:

"Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers!"

"Thank you so much for your thoughtful gift of flowers. Your kindness means so much to us."

"[Name] would have loved your flowers, they were beautiful. Thank you for your generous contribution."

For a Donation

Instead of gifts at a funeral, you may ask attendees for charity donations. Say 'thank you!' with one of these lovely messages:

"We are so grateful for your generosity. Thank you so much for caring about [name] and our family."

"Thank you for your kindness in remembering [name] with your donation. Your generosity is much appreciated by our family."

"Thank you for your generous donation to [charity name]. As you know, [name] suffered from this illness for years before his passing, and this was the perfect gift in his memory."
