The bagpipes have been commemorating the loss of loved ones with music at funeral services for hundreds of years. Many people associate bagpipes with funerals and this is because they powerfully touch our deepest emotions; the haunting voice of the bagpipe express feelings that words alone may fail to convey.

Music is an important part of any funeral service.

World Champion Piper…..

Cameron Edgar

Pipe Major Cameron Edgar is a professional bagpiper  covering Yorkshire.

He has over 40 years piping experience playing at Funerals throughout Yorkshire and the North of England as well as many other events further afield and abroad.

Such experience means that Cameron can guide and assist you to get exactly what you require from hiring a piper.  With the benefit of hundreds of functions over the years Cameron treats every hire individually and can adapt to exactly what you require.

As well as the Highland Bagpipe, Cameron also plays Scottish Smallpipes and Uilleann (Irish) Pipes.

a Longstanding tradition

Every funeral is different and Cameron will discuss your exact requirements and liaise with us to get it exactly how you would want.

Typically at a Crematorium, Cameron will meet the cortege on the driveway and play in front of the hearse to the chapel doors then lead everyone into the chapel. At the end of the service he plays some appropriate tunes as the mourners come out of the service and prepare to depart.
