Hymns, music and poems

The correct choice of hymns and music is an integral element of most funeral services these days, but for situations where no musical preference is stated then we are happy to recommend suitable light classical music for moments such as when the mourners enter or leave the chapel.


An organist can be arranged to play at most service locations, or alternatively CDs or tapes may be used but it is advisable that these are tested on the equipment available beforehand.


Bournemouth and Poole Crematoria use a computerised music library and we are required to notify them of any music and hymn requests at least 48 hours in advance. Please only choose tracks that have been officially recorded.


Poems or readings also can be appropiate and provide comfort to those who are grieving. For an idea of hymns that are commonly sung at funerals we list a selection below:

The Lord's my shepherd

Abide with me

All things bright and beautiful

Amazing Grace

Morning has broken

The day thou gavest, Lord has ended


O Lord my God (How great thou art)

Praise my soul, the king of heaven

Love divine, all loves excelling

Dear Lord and father of mankind

Guide me, O thou great redeemer

Eternal Father srong to save

The King of love my shepherd is

Make me a channel of your peace

Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy

Lead us heavenly Father lead us

In heavenly love abiding

Immortal, invisable, God only wise

The old rugged cross

Thine be the glory

Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father

O Jesus, I have promised

O God, our help in ages past

There is a green hill far away
