A funeral brochure is a folded, printed sheet that presents the events of the funeral or memorial service, as well as celebrates the life of the deceased. Some common names for a funeral program may be a funeral announcement, an order of services scheduled, a funeral brochure, or an obituary schedule.

 A memorial service program (sometimes called a funeral program, funeral obituary program, funeral booklet, memorial brochure, or funeral order of service) is the printed program given at funeral services or memorial services which describes the funeral service or memorial and recaps your loved ones’ lifetime achievements. The funeral program is a small booklet that typically contains the deceased’s praises and details about what will happen at a funeral or memorial service. A funeral plan (sometimes called a funeral pamphlet, funeral brochure, funeral schedule, or funeral obituary schedule) is a printed handout that may contain details about funeral or memorial services, an obituary or memorial tribute, poems, prayers, or memorials. Funeral programs are printed mementos that emphasize the memories of the loved one, including information and photos in their contents.

The contents of funeral brochures typically include, at the very least, photos, names, birth dates, and death dates, a brief obituary, and the service order. Other items might include the funeral obituary, the information about the service, loving tributes submitted by family members, poems for the funeral, and encouraging Scripture passages. Common information included in a memorial brochure includes the order of service (details about funerals or memorials), obituary information, favorite songs, memorial poems, scripture, memorial clipart, and family photos. As with any type of memorial card, be sure to include information about the services.

 You may want to direct funeral guests to a memorial website by including a Web address on your funeral brochure. If the family members are creating a funeral program, they should be aware of the person’s life, be able to access photos and an obituary, and be able to reach the location where the funeral service is being held. The obituary included with the memorial service program may be slightly more detailed than what you might post in a newspaper or on a funeral home’s website. You should check with the funeral home or memorial site about any individual requests, but generally, memorial services may have more individualized orders of service.

 Funeral Orders of Service booklets and funeral programs are printed on 8.5 by 11-inch, quality paper, and folded. Each one of their printable funeral programs is made from unique designs that are made up of quality, coordinated colored covers and interior pages. The interior pages of each funeral booklet contain obituary templates and order-of-service templates, however, you can modify the contents according to your needs. If making funeral brochures at home, funeral brochure templates are an inexpensive, easy solution for producing printed memorial materials with ease.
