One way to make a funeral service very personal is to play pieces of music which are favourites of the deceased, or mean a great deal to the family. If you are having a service in a church not all music would be suitable, but at a crematorium you can be far more imaginative. We would always encourage families to choose meaningful pieces to play.

It might be a song that the person themselves has sung, one they danced to at their wedding, a song that they associated with a special holiday or even the theme tune to their favourite film. Choose something special that will make you laugh or cry, that will bring back memories of the good times or help you to recall those precious moments that you shared. Music will last forever and will comfort you in the uncertain times ahead.
