Choosing Funeral Music


M1131493-bigthumbnailusic is powerful and important to many people and can be an intrinsic part of planning a farewell for your loved one. We have listed below some of the more popular songs that have been used in our services over the last few years.

You can use a song that meant something to the person who passed away, to remind people of a special moment, or even to leave them with a certain message. we have a recorded catalogue of over 10,000 songs that are available, otherwise you can provide your funeral director with the artist and name of the song and we can source it and create a playlist for you.

Of course, if you would like to have live music played, we are happy to organise organists, vocalists, bagpipers, buglers, pianists and even string quartets for you!
