Glencorse Pipe Band can provide you with a piper to play at burials or cremations, at various times according to your preference:
Here are some suggested uses for a piper, but it is entirely up to the client when and where the piper plays.
~ Arrival of the hearse at the crematorium
~ While the coffin is being taken from the hearse and moved into the crematorium
~ When the curtain is drawn /coffin disappears
~ At the end of the service as people leave the crematorium
~ Arrival of the congregation
~ While the coffin is being taken from the church to the hearse
~ Leading the coffin from the hearse to the graveside
~ While the coffin is being lowered into the grave
~ After the coffin has been lowered, the piper can play whilst walking slowly away from the graveside, leaving the sound of the pipes fading into the distance.
Please contact us for further information regarding booking a piper to play at your funeral.
