At Brownjohn Family Funerals, we pride ourselves on the high quality and standards of special keepsakes for family and friends. These come in many different forms—any idea you have can generally be accommodated.
An order of service (booklet) has a photo of the deceased on the front page along with their name, date of birth, date of death and information regarding the place and time of the funeral. The booklet comes in A5 size (which is an A4 sheet of paper folded in half), you can add extra sheets to fit more photos, poems, etc. if required. The second page of the booklet usually has the outlay of the proceedings (order) of the service. The third page could be used for a poem or photos. The back page usually contains a thank you section for people attending, wake details (if applicable) and photos.
Some people would rather have something they can use after the service on a day to day basis, so we offer customised bookmarks. These are a great idea and usually have a photo of the deceased, their name, date of birth, date of death and service details. On the back of the bookmark, you can have a poem or simply leave it blank—the decision is entirely yours.
The people organising the funeral can often be overwhelmed with the support they receive following the passing of their loved one in the way of cards, flowers, donations, etc., and they like to send out thank you cards for showing their appreciation. We can also design and print these for you to distribute.
