Funeral Announcement Templates and Samples

Funeral announcements are a way to inform all the deceased family, friends, and acquaintances of the recent passing of your loved one. It can be as formal as a printed or engraved invitation to the funeral service or a simple email notice. Templates are a great time saver for this type of funeral notice.

There are funeral announcement templates created in Microsoft Word, Publisher or Apple iWork Pages. These type of templates allow you to enter your customize text, photo and then print the announcements. They are generally sent via U.S. mail or hand distributed. 

The downside to creating the funeral announcement with this type of template is the cost of postage, printing and the time interval it will take before the recipient receives it.

Today, the most cost effective way to inform everyone is to send out email notifications of the death. If you would like to send a more creative email notice, you can send it with a funeral announcement template.

These types of templates allow multiple recipient names with a beautiful photo image along side of the announcement text.

There are website resources that enable you to send a free funeral announcement template just by registering your name and email address. Once registered, you can select a type of ecard which resembles somewhat of a postcard.

This type of ecard template does have word limitations since it is only meant to accommodate a funeral announcement and not intended to be used for a lengthy letter.

Email is one of the fastest way to communicate in today's internet age and is the most cost effective. Because more and more people are getting away from sending mail via the traditional U.S. post office, sending funeral announcements via email is the preferred choice.

This type of communication can also save you time and money. As long as you have email addresses of those you want to notify, then emailing funeral announcements using a template will be a great help to you as you notify your family, friends and acquaintances of the death.

You can also state on the announcement the date and time of the memorial service and location if it has already been set. Otherwise, you may want to resend the date, time and location in a separate email.
