Funeral Pre-Planning

The most well-known approach used to declare a death is an obituary. Generally, obituaries were published in news journals, but now they are also published online on memorial sites.

News dailies may publish an obituary for a famed person or a local person of prominence. But generally, it is the responsibility of the deceased’s family to give an obituary. When you write an obituary, make sure to include the following details:

  • Name of the deceased’s (it should be full name – including middle name or initial, maiden name, and nickname)
  • Mention the Date of Birth and the date of demise
    Include the Place of Death and that of Birth too
  • The cause of death (this is optional as per your choice)
    Names of parents, spouses/partners, children and siblings
  • You shall also consider including other notable details, like education, accolades, and military service.
