Creative ideas to personalise a farewell

Free your mind. It’s easy to think “you can’t play that at a funeral”, but you’d be surprised. From classical to modern and happy to sad, you’re not limited in your choices.

  • Play your loved one’s favourite song during the service.
  • Feature a performance by a live band or solo artist.
  • Create a playlist that evokes memories and give guests access to it as an ongoing momento.
  • Ask attendees to join in a group rendition of a meaningful song.
  • Include music as the backing track to a tribute slideshow.
It’s important to be aware that some churches don’t allow secular music to be played during a funeral service. Also, certain faiths have particular traditions when it comes to music. The Walter Carter Funerals team can provide guidance in this area.
