Songs for Funerals

Play a beautiful song at the funeral and dedicate it to the memory of the one you loved. Some prefer to play the deceased's favourite song at their funeral, others dedicate a sentimental song to the deceased that mirrors the sadness of their passing. The pain of lives gone before us have inspired so many beautiful songs. We hope you enjoy our selection.

Funeral Guide has included links to the song words, and a link to each song on YouTube to help you choose. Funeral Guide is not in control of the movements of material on You Tube so our links tend to break frequently. If one of the links below doesn't work, go to YouTube.com and type the artist and song name in the search window to find the song & listen to it on You Tube.

Funeral Guide does not condone piracy.  We also do not suggest playing the You Tube version at the funeral as the quality is reduced.  Use these songs as a reference to help you find the song you want to play at the funeral.  Once you have found the song best suited to your funeral needs, we recommend purchasing song online or from local music store.
