The music and hymns at a funeral have long been an important part of personalising the service. Whether it’s choosing a song or hymn that your loved one enjoyed, or a piece of music that instills the right kind of sentiment, it’s an opportunity to bring personality to the ceremony.
Of course, there may be certain restrictions to what music can be played in some churches, but crematoriums are non-religious buildings and usually allow any music you wish. We have helped families include live musicians in the service, including pianists, buglers and singers. Music and hymns can normally be organised very simply, while live musicians come at an extra cost.
We have a collection of hymn and song choices below, but if you would like further help coordinating the music for your funeral, please get in touch with one of the Harold White team.
