Songs for a graveside funeral

Having singers at the graveside creates a beautiful atmosphere as you say goodbye.

Graveside singing works best unaccompanied (a cappella). Some songs lend themselves to this better than others, so we have listed a few here that sound beautiful with just the singer's voice and no instrumental accompaniment.

If your chosen song isn't listed here, get in touch and we'll find a way to make it work.

Songs that work well at the graveside

Amazing Grace

Schubert's Ave Maria

The Parting Glass

Fields of Athenry

Danny Boy

How Great Thou Art


The Old Rugged Cross

I Vow To Thee My Country

She Moved Through The Fair

Abide With Me

Lloyd Webber's Pie Jesu

Plus most traditional hymns and folk songs.

An instrumentalist can be a nice alternative to a singer for a graveside service. We can provide instrumentalists of all kinds, from violinists and flautists to guitarists and bagpipers.
