Funerals and Cremations
Each service is as individual as your loved one, so we’ll change things to suit your exact needs. Although, we’ve suggested the following elements of a traditional service where you can have a piper play.
Have a funeral piper play whilst the coffin is being taken from the church or funeral home to the hearse or graveside. Pipe at the graveside for as long as needed. The funeral piper will discretely leave the graveside whilst playing, leaving the echo of the pipes in the distance.
Whilst the coffin is taken from the hearse to the crematorium. During the service, as wreaths are laid and the curtain is drawn. Piping to finish the service as your guests leave the crematorium.
Cost for a funeral piper: from £80
Remembrance Services & War Memorial Services
Cost for Service: price on application
