Funeral planning is a significant undertaking and often an emotional task. When surviving family must make final arrangements at the time of need (and even in cases where seniors have planned their services in advance), small yet important details may be overlooked. One of these components is music to be played honoring the deceased.

Tasteful music selections are an easy and meaningful way to personalize a loved one’s services. It is increasingly common to create a playlist for a funeral reception or even a funeral slideshow of pictures and videos set to music for friends and family to enjoy while they share memories and offer condolences.

Whether you are searching for religious hymns for a funeral service, songs about death for a memorial service or more uplifting selections for a celebration of life, look to the funeral playlist below for inspiration.
