Writing a eulogy

Writing and giving a eulogy is a way of saying farewell to someone who has died which 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 to include in your tribute or on your service sheet.
