A funeral order of service is a booklet containing details about the schedule of a funeral ceremony. They are given to mourners when they arrive at the funeral. It contains a range of hymns, readings, or poems that will be read or sung at the funeral. It's a lovely way to commemorate a loved one's life. Here is what you should include.

The Front Cover

The front cover of your order of service will usually be simple. You can choose from a range of different designs to find something to suit your loved one.

Final page

On the last page of your order of service, you may wish to include a photograph of the deceased. You might opt for a more fun photograph than you used on the front of your order of service, such as a family photograph.

If you are wishing for charity donations, this is a good place to note this, too.
