Top 50 Funeral Songs

Are you looking for a beautiful piece of music to play at a funeral to remember a family member or friend? We have complied 50 of the most popular song choices that families play to assist you in making the right selection.

Most funeral venues have state of the art audio visual equipment to ensure that the music sounds just perfect on the day of the service. Families often choose a couple of pieces of music to play during the service.  Often one piece is played to commence the service and then one as the coffin/casket is wheeled out at the conclusion of the service.

When families have a DVD Tribute screen at the funeral they will often choose one or two additional pieces of music that plays in the background as the special photos are screened.  The combination of photos and music can be an extremely moving and poignant element of the service.

Our list, in no particular order, contains 50 of the most popular funeral songs of all time. The list includes classics from Vera Lynn, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole but also contemporary selections from Josh Groban and Robbie Williams.

For funerals held at a Church some of the more popular and stirring Hymns include Amazing Grace, All Things Bright and Beautiful, The Lord is My Shepherd, Abide With Me, Blessed Assurance, Thine Be The Glory, Here I Am Lord, How Great Thou Art, All Things Bright and Beautiful, Because He Lives, All The Way My Saviour Leads Me and I Heard The Voice of Jesus Say.

Obviously our list below isn’t all you can choose from but hopefully it helps you as you make your music selections to remember and honour your loved one.
