Inside the Funeral Booklet
Presiding Minister and Funeral Planning
Talk to your funeral director or celebrant first. They will be a valuable source of advice and guidance on the service.
Any wishes left by the deceased can be discussed then too.
A good Funeral or Memorial Order of Service template provides a framework for the congregation to follow. It provides all the details of the service. It is much more than a formal list of hymns, prayers, and reading, and choosing the right template is important.
View our free online funeral order of service templates you can use to design yours today.
Funeral Service Length & Donations
Know your service duration first. Your Funeral Director will book a timeslot. In places of worship, the service length is likely to be flexible. At crematoria, services are typically 30 minutes long.
If donations are planned, the cause can be specified on the back page of your order of service booklet along with ways to donate.
Funeral Hymns & Readings and Eulogies
From their wealth of experience, your funeral director can advise on both funeral hymns and music.
For ideas, read our ‘What are the most commonly played songs at funerals’ article.
Many hymns have different or shorter versions, which you can find online too.
Copying Hymns from the internet
Top tip: Type the first line of your chosen hymn followed by the word “lyrics” into Google. This will list sites where you can copy copyright-free lyrics.
If a Eulogy is planned, list the title and the reader’s name as part of your order of service.
Order of Service Design
Photos are lovely to use. You can also choose images or graphics to go along with your text for your front cover.
Draw on memories to choose a befitting style. We have many traditional and elegant funeral order of service designs for you to choose from.
Here, you need the deceased’s name and the date and location of the service.
How many pages will you need?
Each inside page of your booklet can accommodate one hymn along with prompts for prayers or readings.
You may wish to include photographs to share treasured memories. Use our photo-page templates to offer a wide variety throughout the Order of Service. Don’t forget to include these in the overall page count.
A standard 4-page booklet will comprise a front and back cover along with two inside pages. These two pages will provide space for two hymns along with prompts for readings and prayers.
Where more content is required, choose from our 8-page or 12-page booklets which should provide all the space you need for details of the service along with a variety of stunning photo pages.
Photographs & Pre-digital Images
Treasured photos mark important life events. If cropping is required, our Order of Service Funeral Template photo editor allows you to crop images easily online.
If you don’t have access to scan older photographs, an easy workaround is to take a photo of the photo with your smartphone.
The inclusion of photo pages has become popular and we have photo pages on all our templates. Aim to use the highest quality digital photos you have. Don’t worry about quality if you’re using older photos, they are wonderful as they are.
Message of thanks
You will most likely have received numerous messages of condolence. Include a brief message of thanks at the end of your Funeral Order of Service. You can also invite the congregation to any post-service gathering for refreshments.
Funeral Thank You Cards can be printed to thank all those who have provided support or attended the funeral service.
Fonts, Bold & Italics
The font should be bold for headings. This helps to break up the different passages and make them easier to read. Use Italics for quotes or to highlight sections to the congregation.
Check your content carefully. No one will notice a rogue apostrophe, but getting key details or dates wrong must be avoided.
Our funeral order of service templates allow you to share proofs. Ask someone to check important details such as dates and the spelling of names.
Streaming Funeral Services
Many funeral venues offer the option of streaming. Ask your presiding minister if it’s a service they can provide.
We offer PDF copies for online participation. If you would like an electronic copy, ask at the time of order and we will email one to you with pleasure.
Top Priority: Quality materials
Be sure to use a top-quality card for your Funeral Order of Service booklet. The cover should not be printed on anything less than a 350gsm card for a high-quality finish.
The inside pages should use high quality paper too. We use 120gsm paper for the inside pages to ensure quality.
Top Priority: Finishing & Binding
The card we use is folded by hand to give the highest-quality finish that machines can’t reproduce using high-quality paper.
