Funeral Bagpiper

Hire a Bagpiper for a Funeral

Hire a funeral bagpiper and leave a lasting memory.

A funeral is a time for reflection and remembering the life of a loved one. A bagpiper playing at the beginning or end is sure to leave a lasting memory.

Burial or Cremation Services
The Piping Experience can provide music for both a burial or cremation. Below is an outline of what could be arranged:


  • Lead the hearse and coffin into the service
  • Lead the coffin to the burial site
  • Play during committal
  • Play in the background once the minister has completed his/her sermon


  • Lead the hearse and coffin into the service
  • Play within the service during committal
  • Play whilst guests gather their thoughts over the flowers

The above is just a guide and can be altered where necessary or where permissions allow.
