Music doesn’t have to be confined to the funeral home or the church. Many times we have seen a lone bagpiper creating the sad tones of “Amazing Grace” or “Going Home” in movies or at televised funerals for fallen firemen and policemen. It is a long established tradition to have “Taps” intoned at the conclusion of a service for those who served in the armed services.
We can assist you in locating musicians to provide these services. If available, a bagpiper can be present at the cemetery when we arrive for the committal service. Though the military will provide a tape recording of “Taps”, you may wish to have us locate a bugler to play a live rendition.
We can arrange for a bagpiper to be standing in place at the cemetery or they can lead the walk to the grave.
In place of a recorded version of “Taps”, a bugler could provide a live performance. This is usually provided by the military.
Committal Floral Arrangements
The long established custom in our area has been to visit a local florist so that they can explain all of the arrangements that are possible with flowers that are available at the time. There are still some family-owned flower shops in our area. If you would find it more convenient, we can coordinate your floral order with a florist of your choice.
There are many different designs available from baskets and sprays to specialized creations like floral pillows and religious arrangements.
