Writing a Eulogy

Writing and giving a eulogy is a way of saying farewell to someone who has died which, in a sense, brings the person to life in the minds of the audience

For the majority of us, writing and giving a eulogy is something we have no experience of and, therefore, we find it difficult to know where to start.

There is no right or wrong way to compose a eulogy; each is as unique as the person giving it and the person it describes.

Co-operative Funeralcare have produced a guide to writing a eulogy. Their leaflet is called 'Well Chosen Words'.

You may also wish to look at our list of poems that you may wish to include in your tribute or on your service sheet.
