Funeral Homes in Bromley | Music for Funerals

At F A Albin & Sons Ltd, we have six funeral homes in the London and South East areas. This put us in a useful position to help those in Bromley who wish to plan funerals with an experienced company of funeral directors. It takes years to refine the caring, understanding and compassionate approach for which we are so well known and, as you might expect, our funeral parlours are quiet, dignified places where respect is afforded at all times.


Like all reputable funeral directors in Bromley and the surrounding areas, we understand that the deceased or their families will have certain considerations in mind when planning funerals. Funeral homes like our own have the ability to accommodate most wishes, even those that are a little unusual. This includes the music to be played at funerals.


All six of our funeral parlours can recommend appropriate hymns for bereaved families who prefer funerals with a more traditional theme but for many of the people we meet from the Bromley area, we try to adapt where we can to play music that may have meant something to the deceased, or to family and friends attending funerals organised by F A Albin & Sons.


Examples of Suitable Music for Funerals in Bromley


F A Albin & Sons Ltd can discuss music for funerals at any one of our funeral homes in London or the surrounding South East Region. The majority of churches and crematoriums in and around the Bromley area have facilities for playing music but we can happily arrange for a CD player to be provided or, if you prefer, we can arrange for your own playback equipment to be ready and available for music before, during and after funerals.


Below, we list some of the music we’ve encountered in our role as funeral directors for the Bromley area. At F A Albin & Sons, we think it’s important for music to be appropriate for the occasion but we also understand that funerals can still be a celebration of life and, on occasion, the humorous side of things. Our funeral parlours will help and advise you on your music choices, irrespective of whether the general theme will be sombre or a little lighter.


Interestingly, pop is now the most popular form of music played at funerals.

For those in Bromley with a desire to celebrate the life of passed friend or family member, a humorous but tasteful song played at funerals helps to evoke happy memories. Our funeral directors will accommodate songs of this nature whenever possible but please understand that some choices might be a little too sensitive or inappropriate for the occasion.


If you would like to discuss your musical options, please call us or visit one of our funeral homes. Our Welling and Sidcup funeral parlours are particularly close to Bromley but if you want to make arrangements from somewhere else in the region, we’ll still be able to help.


We leave you with a selection of the more light-hearted songs played at funerals and hope they raise a smile or, at the very least, provide a reminder that life and people can still be wonderful, even during the saddest and most difficult of times.
