Why Order of Service Funeral Templates Can Make All the Difference

The funeral order of service booklet is tremendously important. It needs to outline clearly what will happen during the funeral and is also likely to include some of the deceased’s personal details and the chosen hymns or songs. In other words, the order of service provides a schedule of events in addition to other helpful information the congregation will require. It helps you to ensure the ceremony runs smoothly.

As well as being practical documents, funeral order of service booklets have a profound, emotive purpose. They help those grieving to honour the deceased’s memory, reflect on his/her qualities and achievements, and recall happy times. For that reason, the booklets often feature photos, plus poems or other special words reminiscent of the person being commemorated.

‘Creating an order of service is more than just putting together an itinerary for the day, it’s a chance to […] share a story, some photos and memories that capture the life of someone close to all of you,’ emphasises Age UK’s order of service guide.
