How to Choose Funeral Music
Choosing funeral music can be daunting, especially at short notice. Our selection of popular funeral hymns and funeral songs have been chosen by the professional funeral soloists at Singers for Funerals, in consultation with funeral directors, ministers and celebrants.
Funeral Hymns Words
At Songs for Funerals, we link our funeral hymns lyrics to a YouTube funeral music video, so you can hear the tune AND see the words. These are NOT videos of us performing - they are the best we can find that give you the tune and the feel.
We've also edited most hymns down to the 3 or 4 most popular verses, so you can print the right words in your order of service for a funeral in the UK or beyond.
Where a hymn is known by an alternative title (e.g. Jerusalem / And did those feet in ancient times), we listed it twice, once under each title.

Singing at a funeral can be difficult at the best of times, so you might like to book a professional funeral singer to help you and your guests during the service. Any hymn you choose from this website can be sung either by a professional funeral soloist from Singers for Funerals as a solo, or together with the mourners, as well as by a church choir or general congregation.
