Music plays an important role at a funeral. The choice of song can be based on what the deceased person liked to listen to, or a song that marked a special time in someone’s life. 

Music is often played:  

  • as people are gathering at the chapel before the service,  
  • used as a reflection time during the service, and  
  • as people leave the service. 

The reflection music can also be added to a video slide show giving both a visual and sound representation of someone’s life. 

Here at Anton Brown Funerals we work with you to select the right music to help you celebrate and commemorate your loved one’s life.

The list below shows some of the songs we regularly use at funeral services. 

While this list is of regularly used songs, do not be afraid to personalise the funeral service with other ‘non-traditional’ music.
