Funeral-Bagpiping-Splott-Thornhill 16th Feb, 2024.

Bagpiping at St. Saviour’s Church in Splott Cardiff today. This was for the Funeral of a local Gentleman with decades of service in the Merchant Navy.
Near the church, I stepped into the road and led the cortege with walking mourners with “Land of My Fathers”. Acknowledging the Nautical theme, I led into the church with “Sailing” (Rod Stewart).
I then met the cortege at Thornhill Crematorium, where again I led the cortege to the chapel entrance with “My Heart Will Go On” (Titanic Theme).
Following the Committal, I played “Queen Elizabeth II Salute”. ( Piobaireachd ).
Thereafter in the Memorial Garden, I played “Going Home” with “Sleep, Dearie Sleep”.
Our Condolences to the many family & friends.
Working once again with the very professional AJ & his team of White Rose Funerals.
