Funeral Piper

Bagpipes played at funerals can touch the deepest emotions.  For centuries pipers have played to commemorate the loss of a loved one.  The soulful and haunting sounds of the ancient scale express convictions and feelings that words alone may fail to convey.  If you are reading this, you may be in need of a piper to help you and your family deal with a very difficult time in your lives.  The pipes can be utilised at any point during the funeral service, it’s purely personal choice, but below are a few suggestions where you may wish to involve a piper.

Cremation:

  • as the congregation arrives for the service
  • for the arrival of the hearse at the crematorium
  • while the coffin is removed from the hearse and lead it into the crematorium
  • when the curtain is drawn
  • at the end of the service as people leave the crematorium

Burial:

  • as the congregation arrives for the service
  • for the arrival of the hearse and lead the coffin into the service
  • the coffin to the hearse after the service
  • the coffin to the graveside
  • as the coffin is lowered into the grave
  • after the coffin has been lowered, with the sound of the pipes fading into the distance
