What to include on a Funeral Program

There are a few important things to include on your funeral program.

Front Page

The front of your funeral program will include the key details:

  • Your loved one's full name, as well as their maiden name
  • Their dates of birth and death
  • Time, place and date of funeral

You may also wish to include a beautiful photograph of your loved one on the front, as well as a thoughtful message, such as 'In loving memory of'. This will turn your programs into the perfect keepsake.

Inside

The inside of your funeral program will go into the details of what will be happening at the funeral, including the words from any readings and poems, as well as lyrics from hymns.

Here are some things that you may wish to include:

  • A special poem or reading
  • Short biography of the deceased
  • Names of family members
  • Service outline
  • Name of Soloist
  • Name and role of the person delivering the service
  • A thank you for sharing this day with the family
  • An invitation to the reception

You can really add as much or as little as you would like.

Back

You don't need to add any details to the back of your program, but you can if you want to.
