Introduction to Funeral
Live Streaming and Recording
There are occasions when distance, health or other circumstances
can mean that some family and friends are not able to attend
a funeral to say goodbye and pay their respects. The restrictions that applied during COVID made this more of an issue.
Live Streaming (sometimes called webcasting) and Recording enables those who are unable to attend in person the opportunity to participate, say goodbye and watch the funeral for themselves, in real time,
over the internet from anywhere in the world.
Rob Aldread is the Director of Music at Dronfield Parish Church and
he learnt how to live stream through successfully setting up
the church with a system to live stream services to the
congregation and community.
Some Funeral Directors then approached Rob for help, so he
purchased his own high-quality set of equipment such that he is able to offer a very good standard, live streaming service at a fair price.
Since February 2021, Rob has successfully live streamed more than 60 funerals and the live stream has successfully worked at all of them.
