HM Queen Elizabeth II
Esher Residents’ Association offers sincere condolences to the Royal Family on the death of Her Majesty The Queen. Her dedication to duty and public service over such a long reign is remarkable.
Her Majesty oversaw the United Kingdom through decades of dramatic change, from the post-war years right through to the modern, inclusive 21st Century nation that we are today.
The Union flag at the Civic Centre will remain at half-mast until the end of the day of The Queen’s funeral. The date of the funeral has not been released as yet. Full details on mourning arrangements nationally are on the Royal Family’s website.
The Union flag at the Civic Centre will be raised on two occasions, however, over the next few days when Proclamations are read nationally and locally. In Elmbridge, the Mayor, Cllr Simon Waugh, will lead a short Proclamation ceremony on Sunday 11 September at 3.30pm. This will be webcast. Further information and details on this will follow from Elmbridge’s Democratic Services team – do check the Elmbridge website for updates.
Books of Condolence are being prepared in the Civic Centre and the Centres for the Community. The Civic Centre book is available now and those at the Centres will be available from Monday 12 September.
The online Book of Condolence set up by the Royal Family is also available.
The Mayor will also send a letter of condolence to the King, on behalf of the borough.
