Family Notices - Templates for Anniversary, Birthday & other Memorials

 

Anniversary

Published to honour the memory of a loved one on the occasion of the anniversary of their death and to give details of any services which will be held in their memory. Often includes a short verse and personal sentiment.

 

Anniversary notices can be published every year, to coincide with a loved one's date of death, to remember their passing. Often a Mass or other gathering will be held to mark this occasion. 

 

We provide a template, as well as a selection of popular verses, to guide you. You can also add up to three photos, to make the announcement all the more personal.
