Poems, Readings and Eulogies


A friend or relative may wish to say a few words during the service about the person who has died. This is called a eulogy.

You can prepare a eulogy yourself or you may prefer to discuss the content of the eulogy with the officiating clergy, who will in turn take care of this difficult task for you on the day of the service.
