Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

It is with deep sadness that Miserden Parish Council has been informed this evening of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
As a mark of respect, St Andrew’s church will be flying the Union flag at half-mast.

Join Miserden Parish Council at The Tree in Miserden on Saturday 10th September at 1:15pm for the local proclamation.

Floral tributes

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

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 Royal Highness, 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 St Andrew’s Church, Miserden


The Royal e-Book of Condolence can be accessed on The Royal Household website shortly. Following the funeral, all messages will be bound in a book with a photograph of her Royal Highness and her birth/death years and a message from the Council Chairman which will be placed on deposit with the Gloucestershire Archives.


Letter to the new Sovereign

The Chairman will send a letter on behalf of the Parish to the Private Secretary asking that condolences be passed to the new Sovereign, His Royal Highness, King Charles III.
