A eulogy is a speech given at a funeral.

The purpose of the eulogy is to tell the life story of a loved one or friend.

Many people worry they won’t be able to summarise a whole life into just a few pages of writing.

Others become nervous about the thought of speaking in front of everyone at the funeral.

We have provided some tips on writing an eulogy along with a template you can download.

Alternatively, Chapel Funerals would be more than happy to assist you with writing your eulogy.
