Most Popular Funeral Music

Music has always played an important part in funeral and memorial services. Today, perhaps, more than ever as services are increasingly about celebrating a life. So, while hymns remain important, they are today joined more and more by favourite personal choices of either classical pieces or popular songs that perhaps evoke happy memories.

Here are a selection of the most popular choices played at Waveney Memorial Park & Crematorium:


  1. Cavalleria rusticana – Pietro Mascagni
  2. Gabriels Oboe (no intro) – Ennio Morricone
  3. Prelude Is In D Flat – Raindrop – Chopin
  4. Pavane – Faure (RLPO)
  5. Largo – New World Symphony – Dvorak – BPO


  1. Time to say goodbye – Andrea Bocelli / Sarah Brightman
  2. Every time we say goodbye – Ella Fitzgerald
  3. Stranger on the shore – Acker Bilk
  4. Moonlight serenade – Glen Miller
  5. Wind beneath my wings – Bette Midler


  1. All Things Bright & Beautiful
  2. Abide With Me
  3. The Lord Is My Shepherd
  4. Love Devine, All Loves Excelling
  5. And Did Those Feet In Ancient Times
