How to structure and write a eulogy

How to structure and write a eulogy

Whilst being asked to write a eulogy for a family member or loved one is undoubtedly a great honour, it can also feel like quite a daunting task. Writing can be difficult at the best of times, and certainly when the topic upon which you’re writing is so emotionally charged. For this reason, we’ve compiled a few handy tips to make your eulogy-writing experience slightly less overwhelming, and perhaps even rewarding.

Structuring your piece

Giving your piece a tangible structure is a simple way to make the experience of writing and reading a eulogy a little bit easier, allowing it to flow in a way which feels comfortable. Consider opening with a general overview of the individual’s life and achievements, before moving on to a meaningful quote that reflects them, and closing with a smaller, more personal memory or thought for your listeners to take home with them, to assist in cherishing your loved one’s memory after the funeral.

Deciding on style

Having been awarded the responsibility of writing the eulogy, it’s likely that you will know your loved one best, and can use this knowledge to capture their essence in the style of your writing. For example, whilst we often think of eulogies as sombre in tone, it’s possible to add in a few more humorous memories and anecdotes if you feel that more effectively reflects the personality of the individual for whom you are writing.

Choosing a quote

It is often advantageous to allow the words of others to assist us in honouring the memory of a loved one. You might want to choose a few lines from a poem that meant a lot to them, or a bible passage that sums up their character. To get you started, we’ve included a few potential examples in our blog post entitled ‘Finding the Right Words’.
