A eulogy, also known as a funeral speech, is a speech delivered at a funeral by someone who knew the deceased. If you are asked to give one, use it to honour the person by giving a brief speech about their life and what they meant to you. Being asked to give a eulogy for a loved one or friend is considered an honour, and if you’ve been asked, it’s a sign that you played an important role in that person’s life. If you’re worried about getting it ‘right,’ remember that each eulogy is meant to be unique. Although there are some general guidelines to follow, writing a eulogy is also about things that come from the heart.

It is not always easy to write a tribute, and it can be a stressful occasion for the person delivering the tribute at the funeral.

If you are writing a eulogy for someone, we have compiled a list of helpful hints and tips. We also have some excerpts from eulogies to help you get started.
