Known as "Beethoven's Funeral March No.1" (and announced as such by the BBC Television company), Johann Heinrich Walch's funeral march is played each year at the Remembrance Sunday Services in London on the Sunday nearest to 11 November. The march was also played during the processions of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, The Queen Mother, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and Her Majesty The Queen, Elizabeth II.

This arrangement is for the UK-style brass band, with alternative parts for horns in F and bass-clef lower brass, and has been reduced to march-card size. The key has also been changed from the original to suit the ensemble better. A recording by a military band (in the original key) can be found on YouTube:
