Most times when I've gone to a funeral there will be someone at the door taking names and often the local paper will run an Obituary which will give these names plus the relationship to the deceased and who they are representing, great for picking up previously unknown relationships and background to the life of the deceased.
I haven't found many wills yet, the few that I do have aren't very helpful for family history purposes, apart from some astronomical amounts of money that seem to have disappeared or completely by-passed me.
Apologies if this has been asked before, how do others record the names of people who attend funerals. I've got a couple of obituaries from the USA that give details of Pall Bearers etc., here in the UK we usually just list the people who attend funerals along with their relationship to the deceased. I would like to record under individual names that they attended the funeral, a sentence along the lines of "he/she attended the funeral of (name of deceased) at (Place, Church)".
If someone could write me a sentence along those lines I would be really grateful as I get very bogged down and they never seem to make sense, or does anyone have any better ideas.
