Music and hymns

We are able to give advice on all aspects of music for the funeral service and make the necessary arrangements.

During their life many people say that they have a song that they want played at their funeral and the choice of music played at a funeral can add a personal touch to the service.

It is becoming more and more popular for recorded music to be played at a funeral instead of, or in addition to, more traditional hymns and organ music.

Also live music and instrumental soloists may be requested, such as a piper or brass band.

Please be advised that if your funeral service is being held in a church, some ministers may only allow traditional music and hymns. Most crematoria have large collections of all types of music and most will allow you to provide your own music on CD.

It is best to let us know your choice of music
