We're looking for an instrumental (CD) recordong of this song to bury my father-in-law to on tuesday 6th May.

When he came up to North Wales to retire 20 years ago, everyone here referred to him as "the Londoner" and so we want this music to be playing as they arrive at the crematorium. Can anyone help?

Thanks, in advance!

Roger Lee

This might give you a place to start: click. Not in the UK, but at least it's an album to look for over there.

Good luck,

kat

My (faulty) memory suggests Flaneghan and Allen aka the Crazy Gang.

I'll try google and Music Hall

Yes, but, many years ago (30+) I've heard it sung in London and Kent Pubs. (East of Medway)

I seem to remember Max Bygraves used to sing it and there's a record here.
There are also other recordings here.

You can find a MIDI file for it here. It's played on a guitar, but it would be a doddle to change the instrument to a honky-tonk piano with a MIDI editing program. I'd be happy to render it into a a .WAV file for you and put it on an audio CD if you wanted. PM me with an address if you want me to mail it to you - it would have to be snail mail though.
Perhaps you could put the words on the Order of Service and get everyone to sing along - mind you I haven't found the words yet.

Wotan...

Sorry to hear your news, and I can't really help with your quest, but as a bit of background information, "Londoner" was written by Hubert Gregg, who can still be found on BBC Radio 2 every Sunday evening.

I'll make a few enquiries for you...but, keep looking.

Regards Ralphie

And Hubert Gregg died last year (or the year before?)
