Founded in 1586, the Guild of Funerary Violinists is not only Britain’s oldest surviving artisans society, but also the first to be granted national status in a Royal Warrant from Queen Elizabeth I. Dedicated to the promotion and execution of the art of Funerary Violin: a tradition once placed at the very heart of our notions of mortality, but now sadly neglected, if not forgotten altogether; the GFV works tirelessly to raise awareness of both the great wealth of music composed to accompany the laying to rest of a tragically departed soul; but also the great wealth of ritual and symbolism associated with mortality and the Funerary Aesthetic , that seems to be so lacking in the culture of today, where Death is pushed to one side and hidden like some embarrassing family secret.

The current Acting Secretary of the Guild is Matt. Tromans.
