Eulogy Form

This form is merely a guide to what information is normally required for a Memorial Service. The Minister will gather the information together and can write the family eulogy for you. Alternatively, you may wish to write your own tribute which the Minister can read out, or a family member may wish to give the tribute on the day of the funeral.

Help on Writing a Eulogy

This form looks fairly big and intimidating, but you don't have to complete it all at one go. If you've already registered on the site, the section with your details is completed automatically. If you haven't already registered on the site, please make sure you complete the "Your Details" section first. That will have the effect of registering you on the site as well and now when you save the form (however little or much of it you've managed to complete), the system will be able to call the application backl for you the next time you come to it. At any time you can just click on "Save" at the bottom of the form to save whatever changes you've made. If you're uncomfortable apllying for a Funeral this way, please don't worry: there is a Adobe Acrobat (PDF) version of this form that you can download, print out and complete by hand instead, if you prefer.

Your Details Part A. Personal Information
  • Why?: We need to be able to contact you and the system needs to be able to recognise you if you save a partially completed Form and need to return to it later on. If you've not already registered on the site, completing this section, at least, will create a Site Profile for you with a Username that is your full name with no spaces (eg: "JohnSmith") and a Password that is exactly the same as your Username (eg: "JohnSmith"). The system should log you in automatically when you next visit.
  • What to complete: We just need your full name, Postal Address including PostCode, Email Address if you have one, and at least one contact telephone number.
