What to Writeon FuneralFlowers

Writing a message to someone who has passed away is never going to be easy. Whether it’s knowing what to say or just having to write down on paper what that person meant to you. It feels like an impossible task to do, right?

Whatever you decide to write, always remember to be sensitive in what you share. Not only to respect the person who has died but also to anyone else who might read the note, the last thing you want is to make them feel uncomfortable or upset about what you have written.

If you’re struggling to find the right words to use, start by including a memory you had together. This could be a funny or sad memory or a moment that you remember with happiness, just as long as it has meaning to you. Then follow it up with a personal touch about that person. It will link perfectly to your special memory and really bring value to the message. Maybe they were always ready with a really bad joke to tell? Were they the person you could rely on to do all the DIY jobs in your home? Maybe they were always ready to give you a big hug when feeling down? Their loved ones will appreciate reading all the memories.

If you need a little help in crafting a funeral message, we have some ideas to inspire you.


Simple Funeral Flower Messages

Sometimes a few words can be far more effective than a long message. All that matters is that you express how much you care and that you write from the heart.

Funeral Flower Messages & Quotes

When sending funeral flowers, make sure your message is as beautiful as the blooms themselves.

Thank you for bringing so much happiness and joy to us all. I will always cherish my memories of you no matter what. We will deeply miss you so much.

Although time will pass and fade away, the memories of you will always stay.

Even though you are gone, you will always hold a place in my heart and be the light that guides me every day.

Sometimes we need to leave it to the experts with one of their famous quotes.

“The song is ended, but the melody lingers on…” - Irving Berlin

“The pain of grief is just as much part of life as the joy of love” - Colin Murray Parkes

“What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes part of us” - Helen Keller

“To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.” - Thomas Campbell

Funeral Flowers

Now you have the perfect message, it’s time to send a thoughtful bouquet to the family to show your sympathy. Flowers such as roses and lilies have always been a popular choice at funerals because the flowers stand for love and purity. If you fancy something a little bit different, there are plenty of other meaningful choices you can pick. Go with something like agapanthus, which is known as the flower of love, or the gorgeous freesia which represents friendship, trust and innocence. Finish everything off with some stunning hydrangea to send a message of gratitude and beauty.

You could also include blooms which are personal to them by including flowers that they adored. Maybe they loved colourful gerbera or were mad about elegant irises. If you’re not sure what were their favourites, you could always go with blooms that represented them – if they loved gardening then choose a selection of flowers from that season. If they were always smiling, then be sure to include yellow roses. Or if they were as elegant as the Queen, then a selection of white flowers such as roses, lilies and hydrangeas will be the perfect choice.


Send your condolences with our carefully picked sympathy flowers, to let them know you are thinking of them.
