"The work that people want most of all at a funeral is a combination of staff and familiarity," said Reverend Jeremy Brooks in a focus group of the Anglican church dedicated to funerals. He thinks it is important that the family of the deceased has the opportunity to choose songs from funerals, regardless of whether the music is religious or not. Brooks believes that musical genres or plays that have been important in the lives of those who have died can help their relatives to remember and regret them.
