What can I put in my Funeral Order of Service?
Our Funeral Orders of Service Template pages will provide all the guidance for what you’ll need.
Delete our sample text and insert your own wording.
It’s as simple as that.
We’d always advise, however, to include your presiding minister or celebrant in any discussion about content and they’ll be able to guide and advise you.
And don’t forget that you can use Photo pages in your order of service funeral too, they’re so popular.
Don’t worry if they’re not pin sharp because they don’t have to be.
Older pictures which may be a tiny bit fuzzy or discoloured lend a sense of time and place to all your wonderful memories.
Do I have to type out the Hymns in full?
Absolutely not, and here’s how.
Simply open another tab in your browser and type the first line of your chosen hymn followed by the word lyrics.
For example, if you’ve chosen the hymn Jerusalem, simply type “Jerusalem lyrics” (our inverted commas) into the search bar, hit search and Google will display loads of copyright-free sites where you can copy the lyrics you want.
Some sites have different versions so take care to choose one which displays the wording and style you want. Simply click and drag the cursor over the wording of your chosen hymn and copy it. Back in the editor, simply paste the text where you want it.
Top Tip. Wording copied from the web will carry lots of hidden formatting which should be stripped out by our editor. However, please check that the typeface and font size matches the rest of your Order of Service text and, that the proper line breaks between verses are in place too.
Typefaces and Type Size
We recommend 12-point type for the main copy in your Funeral Orders of Service which should allow for all ages to read the text without difficulty. Whilst elaborate typefaces can look nice in headings these can be quite difficult to read if used in the main texts so choose your typeface with care.
Page Count Explained
So, why do we have to work in units of 4 pages in an order of service for a funeral?
Funeral Orders of Service booklets will be made up into a booklet of 4, 8 or 12 A5 pages.
Imagine an A4 sheet of paper viewed in landscape mode. If you fold the sheet in half this gives you four A5 panels or pages. If you’ve got more content than can comfortably fit on four pages, we must add another sheet – therefore four more pages.
In a four-page Order of Service page 1 will be the front cover. Page 2 (inside front cover) will typically be your first text page. Page 3 will be your last text page. And page 4 will be your back cover.
But what do I do if I’ve only got content for five or six-page order of service funeral?
That’s very easy, you could consider adding more photo pages. Or, you could consider including a reading or poem in full rather than just the heading.
And lastly, don’t forget it is absolutely Ok to include a blank page or pages.
Blank pages are most commonly used on the inside of the front or back cover and are really useful to make sure that your first text page starts on the right-hand facing page.
Just like a paperback book.
Order of Service Funeral Printing: Finishing & Binding
The high quality, heavyweight board we use is too thick to pass through a high-speed folding machine, so we machine crease it first and then fold each sheet by hand for you.
If you’ve created an 8 or 12-page Orders of Service booklet we score the covers, collate the inner sheets and pass them through a booklet maker. This machine folds and stitches the sheets into a booklet with two wire staples in the spine.
