Funeral Speech Outline

By Rodney Ian

When it comes to giving a tribute speech at a funeral, there's no need to go wild with creativity. Funerals are somber occasions that work best when they follow a certain formula. The traditional, familiar rhythm of the funeral process gives attendees a sense of comfort and helps them to begin moving forward with their grief. Plus, you're probably too broken up about your loss to devote the energy needed to write an exceptionally creative speech.

Fortunately, for most types of ceremonies, all that will be expected of you is to give a sold speech that does everything it's supposed to do without trying to go too far. The standard funeral speech outline works like this:

1. Introduction: For the first minute or two, talk about how the person entered your life. If it's a family member, talk about your relationship with the person, and share some of your earliest memories. If it's a friend or acquaintance, talk about how you met, and address the significance that the person has taken in your life.

2. Anecdote: Every funeral speech outline should include 1-2 minutes to share a memory that helps illustrate the specific character and virtues of the deceased. Ideally, you should think of a memory that few people know about and that highlights the person's individuality. Move your role in the story to the background. Try to choose an anecdote where the person helped you in some way or taught you a valuable life lesson.

3. Conclusion: At a funeral, it's important to emphasize the lasting legacy of the deceased person. When a loved one passes away, we carry that person with us for the rest of our lives, even if, after a while, we don't talk about it all the time. The conclusion of your speech is your chance to state clearly what the person's lasting legacy will be. What type of inspiration do you expect to take from this person and carry though the rest of your life? Try to convince everyone in the room that they should take this inspiration, too.

With this basic funeral speech outline, you should be able to construct a solid speech that lasts anywhere between 3 and 6 minutes. For most funerals, brevity is appreciated, so stick to this formula, don't try to go too far, and you'll do fine.
