what music was played at Sharon's funeral service?
A very good question, to which I don’t have an answer. I can tell you that Sharon’s funeral service was held at the Chapel of the Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City CA. I believe that there is video footage that shows an organ was being played, but what was played I don’t know. Probably hymns.
This video by George Vreeland Hill is a tour of the chapel in which her funeral took place and it also shows her family burial plot. Sharon and her son, Paul Richard, were buried together in an eternal embrace. The ashes of her mother Doris, and sister Patricia, have been buried in the same plot.

Visiting Sharon Tate’s grave, Sunday, September 29th, 2013. It was a warm afternoon, quiet; it was a surprise to find it without any flowers or mementos I see around the likes of other famous graves, like Marilyn’s or Tyrone Powers.. No Sharon Tate, along with her unborn baby Paul,her sister Patricia, and her mother Gladys were together, quiet and by themselves, and I was glad to find them. The top left picture is me, after saying a few words of thanks and hellos, the right picture is me lightly touching the marker and feeling the warmth from the sun across her name, and the bottom one is a curious pic my camera must have taken without me knowing it, but clearly capturing her name..
With so much love and respect to the memory and legacy of the incredible Sharon Tate..You are so loved, and never ever forgotten.
