Most Popular Funeral Music

Music has always played an important part in funeral and memorial services. Today, perhaps, more than ever as services are increasingly about celebrating a life. So, while hymns remain important, they are today joined more and more by favourite personal choices of either classical pieces or popular songs that perhaps evoke happy memories.

Here are a selection of the most popular choices played at South Oxfordshire Crematorium & Memorial Park:

  2. My Way (Frank Sinatra)
  3. I will always love you (Witney Houston)
  4. Wind beneath my Wings(Bette Midler)
  5. Time to say Goodbye (Andrea Bocelli)


  1. The Lords my Shepherd (Psalm 23/Crimond)
  2. Abide with Me (Traditional)
  3. Jerusalem (Traditional)
  4. How Great Thou Art (Traditional)
  5. Amazing Grace (Traditional)

Music Requests

We utilise the Wesley media system to provide a wide-ranging choice of popular and classical songs and music. Many of these choices are already held within our music library at the Crematorium, the content of which is available to view on the Wesley Media website.

Once opened:

  1. Select “Music Library”
  2. Then select either “Client General Libraries” for popular music recordings, or “Client Hymn Libraries” for our worship music collection,
  3. Then select “South Oxfordshire Crematorium” from the drop down menu, and click “Search”
  4. Then simply input the title and/or artist to check what we have in our library by clicking “Search” (clicking “View All” displays the full, unfiltered library)

If we do not have your chosen music this must be booked in advance of the service, by your funeral director.
