Hymns and Music

For a service in church – Not all churches will agree to have music other than the organ played during a service. Permission from the minister will need to be sought if any other music is required. If permitted we can provide a CD player, but the family will need to provide a clearly marked CD.

For Services at Mintlyn Crematorium – Any music that a family wishes to be played during a service can be played, but CD’s cannot be accepted. The crematorium has a resident organist, and a music library (Wesley music system) and as long as at least 48 hours’ notice is given, along with the title and composer/singer of the music it can be obtained. If your choice is not on their library, they can arrange for it to be added.

It is also possible with the crematorium music system for the service to be recorded on to a DVD. The service can also be broadcast on the internet, via a password controlled website. This can be an advantage if family/friends are away and unable to attend service in person. It can be viewed live or up to a week after service.
