A prepared list of appropriate baby funeral songs and hymns


funeral songs When preparing for a sensitive baby funeral which hymns to sing is often a hard decision for parents. choosing an adult one is much easier when the person that passed away often has a firm favourite.

picking a hymn or songs for a stillborn baby funeral or when a baby sadly passed away shortly after delivery can be much harder to pick from.

Use it for a celebration of life picking songs that children love and are popular favourites. You can pick from any of these songs but there are also appropriate hymns that are also suitable too Depending on an organist or pianist but often a church may let you play a cd instead check when the funeral director asks for your requirements. 

(P.S as a nursery nurse and sunday school teacher I wanted to let you know which children's songs they love to hear over and over again based on my experience and a love of working with children)

    We had 3 songs played at our daughters funeral. “Hushabye mountain” from Chitty chitty bang bang, we found a lovely version sung by a lady called Stacey Kent, “Baby mine” from Dumbo sung by Bette Midler, and “lullaby (Goodnight my angel)” sung by Billy Joel.
    Lullabye particularly has beautiful lyrics, and we had it played at the end as we said “goodnight” to our beautiful sleeping angel.
