Traditional Service

Have funeral piper play whist the coffin is being taken from the church or funeral home to the hearse or graveside. Pipe at the graveside for as long as needed. The funeral piper will discretely leave the graveside whilst playing, leaving the echo of pipes in the distance.


Whilst the coffin is taken from the hearse to the crematorium. During the service, as wreaths are laid and the curtain is drawn. Piping to finish the service as your guests leave the crematorium.
