A funeral home template usually contains a place for a photo, the person's birth and death date, and a favorite scripture or poem. It may also include information about a reception or burial after the funeral. Most funeral home templates are formatted in a booklet style with four pages.
Often the front page of the booklet displays a photo of the deceased person. A basic booklet lists the name, birth and death dates, and the time, date and place of the funeral or memorial service.
The inside left page of the booklet can display an order of worship or events taking place during the service. It may also state information about a reception or a grave-side service. It also may list the name of the person officiating the service and others taking part in the ceremony, such as the person giving the eulogy.
The right-hand page often displays a funeral poem or scripture. Some families also include a message to those attending the service. Another option is to add a brief biography of the deceased and a list of her survivors. The back page typically is left blank, but sometimes family members include a farewell to the deceased and the mourners, such as "Until we meet again."
