Funerals and Memorials

Pipers have been used at funeral services for centuries. The Bagpipes can add a special touch to any funeral providing sweet haunting melodies. Bagpipes can be used at any type of funeral, whether it is a cremation, a church service, burial or a wake. Our pipers can also play the Scottish Mussette, which is softer and has a more mellow sound for use during the service if you preferred.

The staff at Pipers of Distinction consider it an honour to be asked to provide a musician for a Funeral or Memorial service and believe that it is an occasion where the stately dignity of the Celtic bagpipe is at its best.

Haunting, moving and solemn are words that have often been used to describe our piper's performances during a memorial service or at a graveside participation.

The Celtic Bagpipe can be played for the following:

  • Lead the hearse to the chapel.
  • As mourners arrive.
  • The piper can play as the family walk into the chapel.
  • The piper can lead the casket to the alter.
  • At any point in the service, the piper could play a hymn, or special tune during "reflection".
  • The pipes can be played as the casket is carried from the chapel.
  • Or as the mourners depart the chapel.

At the Graveside

  • The piper can lead the funeral cortege to the burial site.
  • Lead the procession from the hearse to the graveside.
  • Play an appropriate tune or song at the lowering of the casket.

Everyone has a different concept as to what will make their "final farewell" for someone recently departed, special. We are more than willing to discus with you how a performer from Pipers of Distinction can assist in making your service a tasteful and musically memorable one.
