Slide Music & Readings

Arranging that special song

Depending on the type of funeral you choose, you may want to personalise the service with readings and music that is fitting for the occasion.

For most types of funeral, your options for music and readings are endless, simply talk to our team and we will help you make the choices that are right for you and your loved one.


Live Music

Coles has partnered with a carefully selected range of local musicians – from bagpipers to string quartets and choral ensembles – to provide live music at the service, should you so wish to honour your loved one this way.


Religious Music and Readings

Whether you would like the congregation to join in with hymns or sacred songs, or you would like to play a recording of a classical religious orchestral or choral works such as Faure’s Pie Jesu or Schubert’s Ave Maria – we can help you tailor your choices according to your loved ones personal musical tastes and source all the recordings for you.


Secular Pop Songs and Poetry

There are many beautiful poems and readings you may wish to include in your loved one’s service to pay tribute to their life and explain how much they meant to you. Including their favourite pop songs is another fitting way to say goodbye.


Popular choices include: Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin) – What a Wonderful World (Louis Armstrong) – Supermarket Flowers (Ed Sheeran)


But the list is endless…
