A funeral order of service is a short booklet designed to be given to guests attending the funeral service as they enter the venue. It aims to be a celebration of life and includes the order of speeches, hymns, and messages. It also acts as a memorial keepsake often taken home by loved ones as photos and special messages can be added.

An order of service can be as unique to your loved one as you would like. It is best to discuss with the funeral director or planning service the different options available and finalise the schedule before finalising the booklet design.

A funeral order of service usually has the following parts:

Front page – usually with their name and photograph

The schedule of service – including introductions, chosen music, hymns, poems, speeches and readings, committal blessing and closing music.

Memories and photographs – photographs, quotes and significant memories can be added to the order of service. Major achievements and dates can be recognised here.

Back Page – The back page can detail an expression of thanks, details of charitable donations, and a final photo/closing line.

There is no limit to the number of pages for an order of service, however, traditionally 4-page or 8-page designs work well.

The front page on your order of service is best to be kept simple.

Key details include:

-your loved one’s full name

-a photograph

-the dates of their life

-the date, time, and location of the funeral service
