Especially arranged and rung (half-muffled) prior to the funeral here of Freda M. Hills (nèe Wood) who passed to her rest 5/1/16, aged 75 years. A village resident most of her life and Churchwarden for several years (her brother still holds that office here), she was always a great supporter of the ringers here, and especially of the junior ringers and choir which flourished here between 2011 & 2013.
Immediately following the ringing, the tenor slowly tolled the coffin into the church, and likewise afterward as the gathering proceeded to the churchyard for burial.
Thanks to the New Romney band for the loan of their muffles.
