Writing a Eulogy


  • How do you sum up a life?
  • Stories can be told… Memories recalled…
  • Maybe start with a poem or reading?
  • Milestones can be wonderful…
  • Birth… Marriage… Moves and changes of career…
  • Birthplace, school, where they lived – these are all important.

A eulogy should call to mind special memories. It’s important to talk about this special person, their interests, achievements and family life.

Tell stories… Share fun times – even the naughty things! Some people may feel they can’t speak – but have things to say.

Check if they want to offer some words or a precious memory. It’s sometimes a good idea to show photos or treasured objects from a person’s life at the funeral service or play a special piece of music to help symbolise a loved ones life.

The aspect of the job I like most is being able to help people at a difficult time of their lives.

A good funeral is when you deliver what the family asks for. Sometimes families want something very simple, others have no limits… every funeral is different.
