How to Choose Music for Funerals
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.
If you are not sure of the title, use the Search box on any page to search by alternative title, or just a line of song lyric you might know.
Funeral Hymn and Song Lyrics
At Songs for Funerals, we link our funeral hymns lyrics and funeral song lyrics to a YouTube funeral music video, so you can hear the tune AND see the words. 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.
Booking a Funeral Singer
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.
