Williams' ‘Angels’ and Adele's ‘Someone like you’ are listed among the favorite songs to be played at a funeral in a poll by Co-operative Funeralcare.

Williams, 38, took fifth position on the chart, while Adele is placed at number 22 in less than two years after its release.

Frank Sinatra's ‘My Way’ topped the chart for a seventh consecutive year with 15 percent of the vote, Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli's ‘Time to say goodbye’ came second and Bette Midler took third with ‘Wind beneath my wings,’ Digital Spy reported.

The study also revealed that a quarter of funeral homes refuse to play John Lennon's ‘Imagine’ on the grounds of taste, as it includes the line: ‘Imagine there's no heaven’.

The poll also showed a decline in hymns in favor of pop music at two-thirds of British services, dropping from 41 percent to 30 percent. Only 4 percent of services feature classical music.
