Funeral Bagpiping Newport-Gwent, 15th May, 2019.
Funeral Bagpiping Newport-Gwent, 15th May, 2019. A visit to St. Stephen’s Church, Pillgwenlly, Newport Gwent today. I was Bagpiping for the funeral of a Scots born lady who resided locally. The main service took place at the church, where I played as the funeral cortege approached. Following this I led into the church to “Amazing Grace” & departed to the “Skye Boat Song”.
After that, the committal took place at Gwent Crematorium later, where I played “Oft in the Stilly Night” on the approach. “Going Home” leading into the Chapel. In conclusion I played “Flower of Scotland” at the end of the service. There followed a release of butterflies in memory of the lady. Our condolences to the many family & friends in attendance.
Working once again with the very professional #ToveyBrosFuneralDirectors of Newport.
