Music

Music has long been associated with funerals and it doesn’t just have to be hymns or songs.

Carefully chosen music can be uplifting as well as sad and is often selected because it meant something special to the person who has passed away; maybe a popular song, or a piece of classical music; the possibilities are endless and we’ll help you to ensure the chosen music is available on the day.

Whether you want live or recorded music, we can help you find the right musician or music track.  The majority of funeral venues can now cater for both live and recorded music and we’ll be happy to advise and assist.

We are always happy to make enquiries through our contacts to enable a choir to be provided if possible.
