Many people have a favourite piece of music which their loved ones would like to play during a funeral service as a tribute to them. Depending on where the funeral will be held, we will guide you through the choices available to you.
If you are holding a funeral in church, the celebrant will often help you to select the hymns and music of your choice as part of the process of planning the Mass or service. We are also able to provide you with examples of popular pieces of music and hymns for you to choose from. If you would like musicians or singers to perform at the funeral, we can recommend trusted performers and make all the arrangements on your behalf. Some churches place restrictions on the type of music which can be played as part of a funeral – we will guide you as to what is and what is not permissible.
Funerals at The Haven
If you have chosen to hold a funeral at The Haven, you are free to select any type of music you would like. Not only does The Haven have space for musicians and singers, but it also has the latest audio-visual technology which means you can play music from a CD, MP3 player, iPhone, iPod, iPad or computer. Our surround sound speaker system ensures that each piece will be played to the highest quality.
Funerals at a crematorium
If you have chosen to hold a service at a crematorium, there are typically no restrictions as to the type of music allowed. Families usually provide their own music for a service, which we can do on your behalf. Mount Jerome Crematorium, for example, is able to play cassettes, CDs or MP3 players and can also download music from iTunes or another online music provider.
