Funeral Condolence Book Buying Options and Purchasing from Executive Retail Ltd

Guests at a funeral have a memory to reflect upon about the person that has passed away therefore it is important that there are suitable condolence books present at the funeral memorial service to capture those memories for the family to reflect upon for the years to follow.

There are several different considerations when making a funeral memorial book purchase starting with the colour; white or ivory suggests a celebration of life book, blue or burgundy could be to suit the person’s character with black being a more formal option.

The front cover text in general would be in gold or silver foil blocked with a choice of wording; Condolence Book, Book of Condolence, Book of Remembrance, Celebration of Life, In Loving Memory Book, In Memory, In Memoriam, Forever in our Hearts or Sleeping Peacefully. The cover text choice is a personal preference to suit the character and style of the memorial service.

The inner pages can be presented in a formal or informal manner, with the opening page reading ‘in memory of’ followed by a space to write the person’s name with the following page giving space for a photograph. The following sections in a formal memorial book would start with Names & Addresses as a heading where the funeral guest can leave their details and messages followed by sections Cards/Letters, Floral Tributes and Donations, which are for the bereaved family to complete for their own record.

A more informal funeral guest book would have simply blank inner pages or pages with 15 lines ensuring messages are written in neat order. Either way, most books of condolence will have silver or gold gilt-edged pages to compliment and add style to the memorial book.

Loose-leaf page condolence books are an innovative way to ensure every funeral guest leaves a condolence message as the pages can be easily removed from the memorial book and placed on tables around the room so the guests can leave their messages without having to visit the funeral book table. At the end of the occasion, the pages can be easily and neatly inserted back into the book by a simple double screw mechanism.

All memorial books have a pocket on the inner back cover page to place cards and letters left by guests for safekeeping.
