Funeral Service Details

Here’s a look at some of the smaller details that are easy to overlook but which might just add something to a funeral. From stationary to celebrants, we’ve provided some links to reliable services that will help create a personal service.

Stationery and Printers

The order of service is not just helpful to plan out the service but, for many people, that piece of card acts as a keepsake to return to years later. Make sure its design is in keeping with the rest of the day by looking into the world of funeral stationery:

Create your own

If you’ve mocked up your own order of service and just need a printer, sharpish, then you should look into companies that offer swift but good quality printing services. 

There are websites out there which offer custom designed orders of service using an online design editor. Usually, these are simple to use and save on buying more sophisticated software to design your own order of service. Here’s where you can start:

Condolence and memorial books

Everyone at a funeral has a different story to tell about the person who has died. We think it’s important to capture these memories and anecdotes and would suggest a good quality memorial book to do so. At Death.io we recommend you check out Cherished Condolences as their range of fresh, original designs which can be personalised help create a truly elegant way of remembering all the experiences that make up a person.

Photographers

It’s possible to hire a photographer to take photos before, during and after the funeral service, just like you would a wedding. You may want to capture some of the more intimate moments of the funeral service. Here are a few individuals who have experience with funeral photography:

Celebrants

For the funeral service, you might want to hire a celebrant. This is someone who leads a funeral service. They can suggest hymns, songs, readings and even write the eulogy. Just like a priest, they can direct the service and bring the whole day together. Take a look at our article on what a celebrant is here.

Flowers

Whether you want something to decorate the crematorium with, or you want meaningful memorials, flowers are a staple at most funerals. There are many small, independent florists who can get to work on funeral wreaths, and they are probably just a short walk down your nearest high street. You can also order funeral flowers online:
