good life, good death, good grief

What is the UK’s most popular funeral song?

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. (Eric Idle - From Monty Python's 1983 film "The Life Of Brian")

The Lord is my shepherd is the most commonly chosen hymn, and Nimrod by Elgar is the most popular piece of classical music.

And the most popular TV theme? Match of the Day.*

But there’s a lot more to planning a funeral than picking the music. And there's a lot more to being bereaved than planning a funeral. More information and support is available here.
