Personalising your cremation service

At Hereford Crematorium we are working with funeral media specialists Obitus to deliver high quality audio-visual services. We can provide you with the opportunity to personalise your loved one’s funeral by pulling together music, photographs and video so that the funeral can be a special celebration. Please speak to your funeral director about these services. If you are arranging the funeral yourself, the crematorium office can assist you with any of these services.                                         


Few things help capture a personality more than music. We can help you provide the right music to create a deeply moving moment of reflection. Just let your funeral arranger know which songs you’d like, and they’ll work with Obitus, to make sure they’re played on the day. Even if it’s a rare track, the dedicated Obitus team will do their best to source it. We can create the perfect playlist for your funeral service.

  • Choose your music and let us know what you want. We recommend at least three tracks per service, to cover the entry, reflection, and exiting the service.  
  • Visit the Obitus Music and Hymns libraries to explore what’s already available. 
  • Dedicated music team: On the rare occasion your choice isn’t already in our library, the Obitus team will do all we can to personally find it for you.  

If you prefer live music, there is also an organ available. An organist can be booked for your service by the funeral director.

Visual tributes

Pictures are a beautiful way to remember your loved one. We can provide Visual Tributes on HD screens, ranging from a single image to a video montage – all using your own photos, film, and music. You can also take the tribute away as a tastefully presented Keepsake to watch at home or at another memorial event. 

Single photo

This is a picture of your loved one that can be shown on screens at the venue throughout the funeral service. This can act as a poignant focal point for reflection throughout the service.


  • One photo displayed on all available screens throughout the service.
  • The option to have multiple single photos is also available upon request.

Music tribute

This tribute gives you the opportunity to set your photos perfectly to your choice of music. The video can be played at a chosen time during the service.


  • Your choice of 25 photos.
  • Timed perfectly to your choice of music track.
  • A careful creation and edit of your chosen photos and music to create an impactful Music Tribute. 
  • This video will be played at your chosen time during the service.

Tributes and Live Streams can also be created as a Keepsake.

Basic slideshow without music

You can choose up to 25 photos these will be put together as a tasteful slideshow gently fading between each photo.


  • Your choice of 25 photos.
  • This tribute can be played at a chosen moment or looped for the duration of the service.
  • This includes a careful quality-check and cropping of your photos to create a streamline slideshow for display.
  • Please note this option does not include music.

Your chosen tribute will be carefully edited, so on the day it’s ready to be played at your preferred point.
