Following the funeral service it is customary to send a note of thanks to those who have sent flowers, made memorial donations, delivered food to the house etc. It is not necessary to acknowledge those who signed the register book or called to pay their respects.À

Cards Of Thanks
In many areas it is customary to place a Card of Thanks in the local newspaper following the service. This serves to extend appreciation to all involved and thanks those whom you might have missed with your personal thank you cards. Those often mentioned in a Card of Thanks include clergy, doctors, nurses, hospital or nursing home personnel, home care, funeral directors and friends and neighbours who have provided support through the time of the illness and at the time of the funeral.
