Members of The City of Wellington Pipe Band consider it an honour to be asked to perform at a Funeral or Memorial Service. Pipers have performed at Funerals for a great number of years and the music in known to be very moving. We are more than happy to provide services as requested, while also being able to offer musical advice relating to the performance. Each and every ceremony is unique and we will do our best to make it musically memorable. Previous arrangements have included:

  • Piping as the family enters the chapel
  • Piper leading the casket from the chapel
  • Playing during the ceremony (favourite hymn or special tune)
  • During the lowering of the casket
