Funeral cards let friends and family know about the passing of your loved one. This deeply personal stationery can be written in any way you choose. Create a touching tribute to your loved one by including photographs or personal messages or pictures.
If you need guidance on the wording, we recommend the following. Include the deceased's name, date of birth, and date of death. Add the date, time, and venue of the funeral service to inform mourners of the ceremony details. You may also wish to include whether you will be accepting flowers or collecting charity donations at the service.
We are here to make personalising your funeral cards as easy as possible. Once you have ordered your customised cards, we will send you a free proof via email for you to check and approve. You can make as many changes as you want to ensure the cards are exactly as you want. We won't print anything until you are satisfied with the proof. Once you have approved it, we will carefully hand-pack and quickly dispatch your order. For next-day delivery guaranteed, please use our Express Delivery method.
How do you write a funeral announcement?
You may wish to begin with an introductory phrase announcing the passing of the departed, such as 'The Brown family are sad to announce the passing of John Brown'. In addition to their full name, you could include any well-known nicknames and their maiden name. You may also wish to include the date of their passing. Add details of the funeral service, including the date, time, and venue. You can find out more here on our blog.
How do you announce a funeral announcement on social media?
Consider the timing of your announcement; it is important that close friends and family are told privately beforehand, as it would be upsetting to learn of the departed one's passing on a social media post. Write a respectful post (using correct language and no emojis) with respectful expressions about the departed, the details of the funeral service, and details on whether the funeral is open for anyone to attend or is reserved for close friends/family. Adjust your privacy settings to ensure the message is not seen by anyone you don't know yourself. We have more information on our blog.
