Committal

Committal Music
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.
 
Bagpiper
We can arrange for a bagpiper to be standing in place at the cemetery or they can lead the walk to the grave.
 
 

Bugler
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.
Another option would be to have individual flowers handed out to each person attending the committal service at the cemetery; we can either pull flowers from the arrangements sent to the funeral home or you may purchase a grouping from a florist. As part of our standard service, we will deliver any flowers left after the service to any local destination of your choice including your residence, local nursing homes, or churches.
