Music

Music can play a very important part in any funeral service, providing a fitting background and tribute.

It is common for music to be played on entry to and exit from the cemetery chapel, with either hymns being sung or songs being played during the actual service.

Flowers and hymn books

We offer a wide selection of equipment for you to select from to ensure the service is as you’d like it. Our chapel is equipped with its own organ, and an organist can be arranged by your funeral director to play a wide variety of hymns, classical and modern music.

Our digital music system (OBITUS) has a comprehensive on-line library for you to choose from, and our supplier can also source more unusual pieces of music that are commercially available.

We also have a large screen mounted in the cemetery chapel for a ‘visual tribute’ to be played during the service, photographs and/or video footage being set to music of your choice.

More information on events and history of the cemetery can be found on the Friends of Tunbridge Wells Cemetery website.
