The Duke of Edinburgh
1921 - 2021
Weston on the Green Parish Council is saddened to hear of the passing of His Royal Highness, Duke of Edinburgh. We extend our deepest condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and her family.
Sadly, during the current public health situation, Books of Condolence will not be available for the public to sign.
Buckingham Palace has advised that members of the public wishing to express their condolences are encouraged to send a message to the Royal Family via the online Book of Condolence which can be found on the Buckingham Palace website: www.royal.uk
Buckingham Palace also mentioned that instead of floral tributes members of the public may wish to consider making a donation to a charity of their choice, or one of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Patronages in memory of His Royal Highness, instead of leaving floral tributes.
Further information on county and district procedures can be found via the Council websites:
Oxfordshire County Council: www.oxfordshire.gov.uk
Cherwell District Council: www.cherwell.gov.uk
The Church of England has opened an online condolence book, which is open to any individual or church communities who wish to sign and record a message.
Church bells will be tolled 99 times throughout the benefice at 6pm today and church services on Sunday will give thanks for the life of Prince Philip. For more information on St Marys Church and the Akeman Benefice please visit: http://www.akemanbenefice.org.uk/
