Funeral Order of Service Template

An Order of Service plays an important role in a funeral. Not only does it ensure that your guests are well-informed but it also works as a guide to help them through each part of the day. Gone are the days when a Funeral Order of Service was just a simple itinerary of the service.

Nowadays many families use a Funeral Order of Service to pay their respects and as the ultimate tribute and celebration of their loved ones life in a booklet that will be cherished and kept by each guest.

At Carroll and Carroll we have many Funeral Order of Service template designs that we can show you and give you all the help you need to create a personalised Funeral Order of Service.

Tips and Advice

The key to a great Order of Service is simplicity.

For the front cover all you need to do is include the following information

  • Name of the person you are there to celebrate, the date, venue and location

Choosing the amount of pages you need for the inside contents depends entirely on your wishes, the main things to include are:

  • A paragraph about the person
  • A list of close family members
  • A timeline of the day
  • Any other locations such as the wake venue
  • Readings, poems or hymns, any music chosen
  • A thank you note to your guests at the end

For a funeral order of service it’s nice to have a picture of who you are celebrating on the front cover, though it’s also a nice touch to include a collection of photos in the middle or at the end.

The back cover is often forgotten about when designing but it’s always nice to make use of it by adding a line from a poem or an inspirational quote that will touchingly sum up the event.

We work with small local businesses with vast experience in designing and printing using a wide range of templates from traditional to contemporary booklets to make the Funeral Order of Service uniquely perfect for you and your family.
