Last Post and Amazing Grace

The Bagpipes playing "Amazing Grace" and/or "Flowers of the Forest" at the memorial service provides a tribute no finer. A piper, off in the distance, playing leaves an everlasting impression.

Listed below are only suggestions or guidelines to help you decide your needs. We have been doing memorial services for over 45 years. With that many years of experience, we can provide insight in making your memorial service successful. Even if you do not hire us, we would be happy to consult with you on any part of your memorial service plans.

Funerals are often very short notice, however, we will get back to you within 4-8 hours after your initial call.

We always have two sets of Bagpipes. The Great Highland Bagpipes (GHP) and Fireside Bagpipes. The GHP are the Bagpipes most people are familiar with. These are great for "open space" areas, whereas the Fireside Bagpipers were developed specifically for "close space" areas.
