Funeral Order of Service Template

Posted by Admin on Jul 19th 2018

What is a funeral order of service template? If you do not know where to start on creating your program, a template will be helpful in assisting you with the things to include. The order of service is one of the items that is typically included inside a program and our templates provide "filler text" so you can quickly replace our filler text with your own information and customize it to your specific ceremony.

Funeral of services can vary depending on the type of ceremony you will be having. Even if it is religious, there are many variations between a Catholic and a Christian funeral service that will be different in what is noted in the order. Often families can obtain the information for the service through the clergy of the church where it is being held or get assistance from the funeral director. You can also begin to note what you want included and the funeral staff can assist you in the proper flow and how items can be ordered.

If you do not know the order of service, you can be general in what you type into the program template. It does not have to be exact. For example, if you do not know who will be speaking or giving the Eulogy, you can just leave the name blank, it is not always necessary to enter a name with the item.

Some families leave out an order of service from the bulletin altogether for reasons such as not knowing the flow or not having any particular itemized order, you may be choose to enter a collage of photos on the page that typically holds this information. There is no right way or wrong, usually religious ceremonies have a specific order of a mass or the ceremony but other services do not have such a structured flow and is up to the family on what they want to include.

Our funeral order of service templates offer sample text to help guide you since some families are not sure what to include into a funeral program. Order of service programs can vary from service to service and really depends on how the family is going to have the final celebration of life. It can also vary from religious ceremonies to another. For example a Christian order of service may vary from a Catholic mass ceremony. Order of services typically include any or all of the following sample.
