Funeral Bagpiping today at St. Bartholomew and All Saints Church & Cemetery in Royal Wootton Bassett near Swindon. This was for a local lady with Scottish connections.
 
On the approach to the church, I played: “The Massacre of Glencoe”, “The Blue Bells of Scotland” & “The Mull of Kintyre”.
 
The Church entry was to “Flower of Scotland” & to lead from the church: “The Skye Boat Song”.
 
Thereafter, I led the cortege and walking mourners the half mile to the cemetery entrance with “My Home”, “The Mist Covered Mountains”, “Flowers of the Forest” & “Oft in the Stilly Night”.
 
The grave approach was to: “The Northern Lights of Old Aberdeen” & “Highland Cathedral”.
After the interment, the tunes included: “The Dark Isle”, “Amazing Grace” & “Queen Elizabeth II Salute”.
 
Our Sincere Condolences to the family & many friends in attendance.
