Funeral Songs

Song ideas for funerals

Songs have always been part of funerals. Your personal choice of songs for funerals helps both celebrate and remember the passing of a loved one.

Whether a traditional sacred piece such as “Ave Maria”, or a song that has special memories, having that sung live at a funeral adds an extra level of love, care and personalisation to the service.

Your songs, our voices

At Singers for Funerals, we can sing your choice of songs for a funeral service from classical to popular, using our own professionally recorded accompaniments.

Our discreet wireless speaker system (and no microphones) us great flexibility to perform the music you want, and still be in keeping with the respectful nature of a funeral service.
