Funeral Chimes

Most nights as we sit in our house we hear a mournful wailing tune. In some ways it resembles a very sad ice cream van, which is followed by a public address system announcing something. It travels up and down the roads the sound waves ebbing and flowing as it goes. For some time we have wondered exactly what this is and recently we discovered what it was. The system used as a way of informing the locals that someone has died. The recording below is a little rough as the tune is actually quite quiet.
