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

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Stroud Town Council is saddened by the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and joins the nation, and the world, to grieve the loss of an incredible life dedicated to service. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Royal Family at this deeply sad time.

Floral tributes
An area for floral tributes will be provided on the forecourt of the Subscription Rooms.

After the funeral the flowers will be collected and composted, so please avoid plastic/cellophane. The compost will be used to fertilise a tree which will be planted in memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by the Town Mayor at a suitable location in Stroud.

Books of Condolence
There will be a Book of Condolence available for members of the community to sign, at the Town Council offices between the hours of 9.30am – 12.30pm Monday to Friday.

We will also 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 Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and her birth/death years and a message from the Town Mayor which will be placed on deposit with the Gloucestershire Archives.

A portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II will be displayed, with mourning ribbon, in the council office for one month following the funeral.

Letter to the new Sovereign
The Mayor will send a letter on behalf of the Town to the Private Secretary asking that condolences be passed to the new Sovereign King Charles III.
