Frequently Asked Questions
What is a death announcement?
A death announcement is a short printed statement letting people know that someone has passed away. Historically these were published in the local newspaper, but today, it's much easier to share this information online, and many people are using memorial websites to do so.
Why should you make a death announcement or funeral announcement online?
Sharing information about a death online both lets you share a lot more information about the person who passed away and makes it easy to share that information with as many people as possible. It's easy to add any information you'd like to a memorial website and then email out a beautiful funeral service announcement that links to the website for more information. You can also share the link with others via Facebook, text message and more. This allows you to make a much more heartfelt death announcement.
What should you say in a death announcement or funeral announcement?
There's no one right way to make a death or funeral announcement. That being said, if you're not sure where to start and you want some help with funeral announcement wording, Ever Loved has funeral announcement templates that can help. Many people choose to start with a sample funeral announcement and then customize it to make it theirs.
What should you avoid in a funeral announcement?
Funeral announcements can vary depending on the events, the family, and the audience. In general, you'll want to avoid including content that's highly graphic or will be disturbing to those reading. Additionally, you'll want to avoid talking down on the deceased or their family, blaming others or the deceased, or using the funeral announcement as a way to hurt others.
Do you have to make a death announcement in the newspaper, too?
Making a death announcement in the newspaper isn't typically required, unless it's required by your state's probate law. Some state laws require executors to place a death announcement in the newspaper as a notice to creditors and potential heirs that a death has occurred. If you aren't the executor of the estate, you typically do not need to worry about making a death announcement in the newspaper.
