Top Funeral Songs in the UK

Its coming up for the National Funeral Exhibition again- and I find my thoughts (naturally for someone that works in bereavement- I think!) turning towards funerals and planning and all things generally usually only thought about at the end of life.

Ive had fleeting moments of ‘ oh- id like this as my funeral song’ but what are our top 20 funeral songs here in the United Kingdom?
