Music plays a very important part in a funeral service and at Roucan Loch we have superb acoustics creating the perfect atmosphere for your favourite tune. Our chapel has a hearing loop system installed.

Our organists are accomplished musicians and are happy to perform a piece of music, although we kindly request it is given to them at least 2 days in advance of the Funeral Service.

Our sound systems use CD’s. Ideally we would prefer original, new CD’s for the service as this limits the chances of a fault occurring with the disc. When providing a CD to be used for a service it must be given to your funeral director at least 2 days before the service to allow time to test it on the sound system. Unfortunately we can not accept music on MP3 or memory stick due to the risk of airing inappropriate material.

The Roucan Loch hymn book contains 50 well known hymns (see below). This is by no means an exhaustive list and you may choose any hymn you like.


Inviting a musician along to perform a favourite piece of music can introduce a unique dimension to the service.

Ruth Jardine, the Crematorium Manager and Professional Funeral Celebrant is also an accomplished flautist and regularly provides music at services. Tunes such as Highland Cathedral, Annie’s Song, Somewhere over the Rainbow, Danny Boy, The Dark Island, Pie Jesu or Ave Maria can be cleverly woven into a service to provide a truly unique experience for mourners.
