Obituary Notice Templates

Obituary can be defined as a particular type of news in local newspapers and magazines that let the readers know about the death of a famous or important person. Along with the news, it also includes a short life story of that person and informs the readers about his achievements in life.

Brief Description of Obituary Notice:

When a person dies, he frees himself from the worries of the world but the rest of the people around him i.e. family members, relatives and friends are still there to grieve and start living without that person. In that time, they usually don’t have the courage and stamina to tell each and every person in the family and in the city about the death so in order to make this quick and less uncomfortable, they publish short news in the local newspaper and that news is called obituary notice.

On one hand, it tells people about the death of the person and on other hand, it also informs them about the funeral services. It is optional but many people also include a short life story of the deceased person along with the news of death of the person in order to memorize his services and efforts for the humanity and for people around him.

Elements of an Obituary Notice:

  • Name of the deceased person
  • Picture of that person
  • Date when that person born and when he died
  • Name of the city and place where he died
  • Anything particular that the deceased person said about the day of his death
  • Date of the funeral along with the time and place
  • Life story of the deceased person (optional)

Reasons to Publish an Obituary Notice:

There could be many reasons of publishing an obituary of a deceased person but most importantly, it serves the option of informing all the people around the city and world that a particular person has died and also it serves the place to inform them about the funeral and other services. It is not possible for the grieving family to call each and every person they know and tell them about the sorrowful news but they just publish an obituary notice in the newspaper and everybody finds out without much effort. This notice also tells the story of the life of deceased person and let the readers know about the accomplishments and achievements of the dead person.

Where to get an Obituary Notice?

As we have discussed above that these notices are published in local and international newspapers so most of the time, only newspaper writers write these notices and after editing by the editor, they are published in the newspapers. There is another option for the family and friends of a deceased person that they can also write the obituary of their loved one that will be published in the newspaper after reviewing by the editor. Word count is very important in writing the obituary of a person because newspapers have limited space dedicated for such notices and when the notice exceeds the word count limit, the editor has to remove some of the sentences.
