An Independent and Traditional Family Funeral Director
Sometimes it is considered appropiate to include live music at some stage of a funeral and we are happy to organise this subject to availability. This could be the hire of a piper or a New Orleans style jazz band to lead the cortege from the deceased's home or as it approaches the service venue. Alternatively, it could be a musician, soloist or choir selected to play or sing a musical tribute as part of the funeral ceremony itself.
If the service or ceremony is at a crematorium, it may be advisable to book additional time for use of the chapel in order to allow musicians ample time to prepare before the service commences. It might also be necessary to arrange for an organist to accompany any choir or soloist, and some rehearsal beforehand will be required.
For some military funerals, and particularly those of a former Royal Marine, it is usual for a bugler to play the 'Last Post' and 'Reveille'. The Royal Marines Association usually arrange this for their own members but a bugler will need be hired if required at other ex-service personel's funerals.
