Serving the people of Stroud to create a thriving, sustainable community

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

10 June 1921 – 9 April 2021

Floral tributes

In order to comply with COVID-19 restrictions in place, and to prevent the spread of infection, we respectfully ask members of the public not to lay flowers or other memorial items such as candles, messages and mementoes, at Royal Residences or other public spaces.

Books of Condolence

Because of COVID-19 restrictions we are not able to offer a physical book of condolence, but we will accept online submissions for a virtual Book of Condolence through the contact form on our website. Submissions will then be collated and included in a Book of Condolence.

The Buckingham Palace e-Book of Condolence can be accessed on The Royal Household website.

Following the funeral all messages will be bound in a book with a photograph
of his High Royal Highness and his birth/death years and a message from the Town Mayor which will be placed on deposit with the Gloucestershire Archives.

A portrait of his Royal Highness, Prince Philip will be displayed, with mourning ribbon, in the council office for one month following the funeral.

Letter to the Queen

The Mayor will send a letter on behalf of the Town to the Private Secretary asking that condolences be passed to the Queen and other members of the family.
