Song Choice

Diamond Option

This includes a choice of up to three songs from the list below. The type of funeral service may help steer your decision. For example, if it's in a church, you may want to have a mix of congregational songs and solo performances. Lara will be able to guide you with this.


All songs will be performed by Lara accompanied by her acoustic guitar or backing track if it's better suited. Acapella on request.

A bespoke option is also available and can include additional musicians, personalised songs and funerals outside of the Leeds/Bradford area.
