How Long After a Funeral Do You Send Thank You Cards?


You may be wondering when is the right time to send thank you cards after a funeral? Don't worry, we are here to help you.

When Should You Send Thank You Cards?

Lots of people give different answers to this question and you may hear anything from one week to one year. There is no 'right time', and you should only send cards when you feel ready.

However, if you do feel comfortable sending out thank you cards soon after the funeral then we would recommend to send them between two and four weeks after the day. This is just enough time for you to prepare after the funeral, without giving you too many jobs to do at once. The funeral will also still be fresh in people's minds and they will be so grateful to receive a card.

Of course, if you don't feel up to writing cards soon after the funeral, you can wait as long as you like. It's better to send them late than never, and funeral attendees will always be happy to receive one.
