A Seraphim Toll rang from the Riddarholm Church in Stockholm

King Bhumibol Adulyadej was a Knight of the Order of the Seraphim, Sweden's highest order. Deceased knights and members are traditionally honoured with a Seraphim Toll at the Riddarholm Church for an hour on the day of burial.

Before the Seraphim Toll, King Bhumibol Adulyadej's Seraphim arms were carried from the Royal Palace of Stockholm to the Riddarholm Church, escorted by drummers and grenadiers from the Life Guard.

More than 1,200 people followed the Seraphim arms. The arms were then hung in the chancel during the toll. Seraphim Tolls are the only occasion on which the church's bells are rung.
