How to Write Funeral Notices

There are two ways to approach writing the funeral notice. Both approaches are equally correct. Just consider what is right for you and the person who has died.

1. You can provide the ‘who, what, where and when’, that is, only the necessary facts.

2. You can provide an historical statement, a notice that many will cut out from the paper and keep. In addition to the who, what, where and when, this type of notice generally includes dates of birth and death and all immediate family names and may be worded in a way that reflects something of the essence of the person and the relationship others had with them.

Remember that newspapers will only accept a funeral notice from your funeral director and prices vary based on the length and inclusions in the funeral notice.

Should you not require a funeral notice, we are also able to place a death notice that does not include the funeral details but still provides an announcement of your loved ones passing.

Our Brisbane funeral directors will work closely with you to write a suitable funeral notice or death notice based on your personal preferences.
