Funeral and obituary notices
There are several types of notices placed in the classified section of newspapers in Australia. These include:
A funeral notice is placed by the family, usually through the funeral director. It is an opportunity to publicly announce the death and funeral details of your loved one, and can also be used to pay tribute to the deceased. Details of where any donations or flowers can be sent may also be included.
Death notices are placed by families and friends as a mark of respect and to offer condolences and sympathy.
Bereavement notices are placed by families to thank hospital staff for their help, or to friends for their flowers and thoughts.
These notices are placed by families to commemorate the anniversary of the death.
You can ask the funeral director not to include their business logo in your notice; otherwise you will be paying for their advertising.
