A Great Honour today, Bagpiping at Coychurch Crematorium for the Funeral of a local Gentleman with Military, Scottish & Cyprus living/travelling links.
On the approach, I led to the chapel with “Salute to Willie, The Royal Fendersmith” with the requested “Calon Lan”.
For the chapel entry, mourners were led in, acknowledging the Military theme with “The Dark Isle”. After the Committal, I played “Queen Elizabeth II Salute” from the Classical & Original Bagpipe idiom Piobaireachd.
I then to lead mourners from the chapel, with the requested “Going Home”, along with “Sleep, Dearie Sleep” before moving to Coed-Y-Mwstrw Hotel where I was asked to play as mourners arrived for the wake.
These tunes were a mix of Welsh/Scots & Military along with the requested “Bonnie Dundee”.
Our sincere condolences to Carol, family & many friends.
Working alongside Ron & his team of Mel & Ron Watkins Funeral Services Bridgend.
