Arranging a Funeral


Your choice of music for the funeral service is so very important and we will advise you regarding various options available – including help with any additional equipment required.

Telford, Shrewsbury and Bushbury Crematoria all operate an online-based music provider who will source all commercially recorded music for you.

You are welcome to discuss your choices with us, and we will be pleased to make you aware of local arrangements in all crematoria and places of worship.

If the service is in church, we will need to obtain permission from the clergy before certain music can be played, and certain restrictions regarding your choice may apply.

It is essential that any recorded music is discussed and agreed at least 72 working hours in advance of the funeral. This will ensure that there is plenty of time

for delivery, downloading and rehearsal to ensure that everything happens as intended.

Please note: crematoria rarely allow last minute recorded music requests.
