We have put together a selection of the most popular funeral hymns as well as the ones we particularly like.
Before you can decide on which funeral music to choose, the most important decision is what sort of service you want. Is it to be a formal church service funeral or is it to be a celebration of your loved ones life in a more informal setting?
Sit quietly and make your decisions on what sort of service best suits your family's needs. Then your minister or celebrant will give you all the guidance you need.
Do choose your loved ones favourite music. This is so personal and for the family of the deceased to decide. My father loved to sing “The Old Wooden Cross” - he rarely went to church, but that was what my brother chose at his service. Sometimes the deceased have left instructions as to what they would like played at their service.
The seasons can also influence what music is chosen whether it be Christmas time and favourite carols sung or Easter hymns. Farmers love the harvest festival hymns. Fishermen have their favourite hymns too.
The list is endless and we are sure you will find something very suitable for your loved ones tastes - they would have been proud of your efforts.
Sales from our pages result in a small commission to us which helps us to continue our work supporting the grieving.
The Magnolia is one of the earth's oldest plants, with a spectacular flower which dates back 95 million years. What a beautiful specimen to commemorate a life.
These trees are grown by the foremost magnolia nursery in the country and they will send a variety most suited to the recipient's climate.
The flowers in spring will bring joy to the bereaved and help to heal their heart.
