Book of Condolence
Published: 09 September 2022
A Book of Condolence has been opened at Deal Town Hall to mark the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Those wishing to pay their respects are warmly invited to do so and the book will be available until 5pm on Tuesday 20 September.
The Book of Condolence will be housed in the lobby, accessed via the Town Hall Undercroft and our neighbouring church, St George’s, is welcoming floral tributes at the East Window.
The Town Hall has a 45° flag post and protocol dictates that when we fly the Union Flag at this time of mourning, that it not to be lowered but to be flown with a black ribbon.
Cllr Christopher Turner, Mayor of Deal said: "It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of our monarch, Queen Elizabeth II and our thoughts are with her family at this sad time.
“It does not seem too long ago that we were celebrating her Platinum Jubilee, marking her faithful service to our country. Today, we fly the Union Flag with a black ribbon attached.
“As we come together as a town, sharing our loss, a Book of Condolence has been opened at Deal Town Hall for those wishing to pay their respects and floral tributes will be welcomed at St George’s Church.”
Condolences can also be expressed on the website www.royal.uk
