Pipers have been used at military and state funerals for centuries, but now Piping is becoming more of a common feature at everyday funerals. The Bagpipes add a special touch to any funeral providing sweet haunting melodies. The sound of the bagpipe is the perfect send off for your loved ones. They can be used at any type of funeral, whether it is a cremation or burial. We can also offer a Piper to play the Scottish Small Pipes, which have a more mellow sound for use during the service.
You can have the Piper playing laments outside the crematorium as mourners are arriving and laying wreaths, the music will help them drift off in to a world of remembrance. The Pipes can also be used during the service when the coffin is being lowered and the curtain is being drawn. We can also lead the hearse from the entrance of the crematorium to the door.
Again the Pipes can be used inside or outside the church during the ceremony, we can play to lead the coffin from the service to the hearse to take the departed on their final journey. The piper can paige the hearse into the cemetery. At the graveside the Piper can play as the coffin is being lowered into the ground, and continue to play as the mourners pay their last respects and take a moment for reflection. At this point the Piper can be marching slowly away until the music fades into the distance
It is natural to contemplate the arrangements you would wish for your own funeral. Many people find consolation in planning ahead, since this can reduce the burden and worry for relatives and friends. It is a simple way of providing for the cost of your funeral in advance, and ensures that your specific wishes will be honoured.
As independent funeral directors, we recommend GOLDEN CHARTER pre-paid plans - who also administer the "Help the Aged" funeral plans. They are a British company who give people the freedom of choice of funeral director.
