When writing a funeral announcement, it should include memorial service information, the name of the deceased, surviving family, residence of the deceased, place of employment, clergy for the funeral and pictures. It can be written in either a simple or formal manner, and should include all of the above details.

A funeral announcement must have a date, place and time of the funeral, and it can include floral or memorial contributions. The announcement can be sent through email as a more simple means of notifying the deceased loved ones, acquaintances and friends. Funeral announcements can also be printed in the local newspapers obituary section.
