Memorial Service Program Layout
By Carole Galassi
Many grieving families, funeral directors, are utilizing
memorial program templates to produce printed pamphlets
that highlight a deceased life. Normally, the families
are responsible for supplying the details to be placed
inside the memorial service program layout.
Beneath is a brief notation and some of the necessary
components for the memorial program:
Noted here are some of the main sections that make up a
regular memorial program layout. On the front of the
memorial program, information displayed usually involves
a photo of the deceased and some short information about
them such as the full name, which includes nicknames
shown in (parenthesis).
The date of birth or "sunrise" as some like to refer to
it, and day of death or "sunset" if you prefer, can also
be indicated beneath the front cover photograph.
In addition, funeral logistics (area, time, date of the
service) need to be displayed either on the cover or
somewhere within the interior pages of the program
itself. Precise facts on the front cover is crucial, as
it supplies critical information about the deceased.
Some employers will actually accept a funeral program as
proof of your attendance to a funeral/memorial service.
So this tiny token of remembrance has a variety of
reasons why you should have one produced.
The cover page is generally adorned with large, fancy
script lettering, like "In Loving Memory" or "In Your
Loving Remembrance". It can have any title you desire to
write, just remember this is a tribute to your loved one
and it should have an appropriate title that is suitable
for their final celebration of life.
The best place to find additional information regarding
the memorial service is The Funeral Program Site. There
is also a large, beautiful selection of templates for
memorial or funeral programs, funeral bookmarks, prayer
cards, and thank you notes.
