Orders of Service & Tokens of Remembrance | J&S Funerals
After attending a service, many find that they wish to take away some sort of tribute that will
help them remember the event for years and years to come. Bespoke orders of service, and similar
printed items such as attendance cards, memorial cards and bookmarks, can be ideal options to
ensure all walk away with a heartfelt token of remembrance. Other products, such as memory boxes
and books of condolence, can provide immediate family with a treasure that can be looked back on
J&S Funerals offers funeral organisers a range of different options for all these different
product types, which can incorporate personal photographs, poems, hymns, eulogies or whatever
else you think will encapsulate the spirit of the day. On this page, we’ve featured examples so
you can get an idea of what might best suit. We welcome you to contact our funeral directors if
you’d like further advice, by calling 01923 262939.
Orders of Service
These are professionally designed and printed on either premium silk paper, uncoated paper or
a premium recycled paper with as light grain in the finish. Incorporate relevant colour or
black and white photos, and complement them with your choice of backgrounds and borders.
Past Time and Hobbies
Black and White
A simplified version of an order of service. Memorial cards are also designed to your
preferences, often featuring text on one side paying tribute to the deceased, and a design
on the front which may feature their name, when they were born and passed, and a simple
graphic or border.
Bookmarks & Keyrings
A bookmark is a wonderful tribute as it will likely see a lot of use, and constantly remind
the owner of the legacy of the deceased. Likewise, metal and clear plastic keyrings
featuring a photo on one side and a text on the other (e.g a poem or eulogy) is a popular
Books of Condolence
Funeral services are the perfect opportunity for family and friends to reflect, sharing their
personal memories and stories of the dearly departed. A personalised book of condolence
allows you to collect these recollections, and look back at them whenever you wish to
remember your loved one, and share a smile or laugh about their way.
These cute boxes let you store keepsakes safely, each of which will evoke different memories
relating to the departed. They’re ideal if you have little knick-knacks, jewellery,
photographs and similar mementos each of which helps build the bigger picture of a life well
lived. Just as with other stationary items, these can be fully personalised and can be
manufactured in different sizes.
A high quality portrait photo of the deceased can enjoy pride of place on your mantel or
elsewhere in your home, where it will be a warm and soothing reminder of their lifetime. We
manufacture these in different styles, from a traditional two-tone frame with contrasting
mount, to a more contemporary canvas print.
Get creative with a memory board, which be a fun collection of photos, newspaper clippings
and similar items that tell a story. They can then be placed on prominent display at the
service itself, and be mounted on a wall, or placed on a mantle at home
after the service
