The local area's response to the passing of the Monarch
Queen Elizabeth II
Churches across Brentford and Isleworth have left their doors open to allow people to mark the death of Queen Elizabeth II in quiet remembrance.
St Paul’s Church has a condolence book which you can sign or you can light a candle. It will be open this Saturday from 8.30pm and 3.30pm.
St. Mary’s Church in Osterley has also a condolence book and is open every day.
Local MP Ruth Cadbury MP said, “At this saddest of times, I send the thoughts, prayers and condolences of my family and my constituents to the Royal Family.
“The Queen was first and foremost devoted to her family; her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and wider family. For over 70 years the Queen has been a constant in all our lives; a beacon of dedication and stability. She served graciously and tirelessly as our monarch and personified just what public service should be.”
Council Leader, Councillor Shantanu Rajawat, added, “Our late Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth the Second was the longest serving Monarch in this country’s history. She visited the Borough on several occasions during her reign and will be remembered with affection and gratitude by residents, as she will be by people across the country and indeed the globe.
“The Queen’s devotion to public service was truly exemplary. Over a period in history that saw many momentous changes she provided a consistency that was invaluable to all living in our country. We owe her a tremendous debt of gratitude.”
The council has lowered the two flags it flies, at Hounslow House and Chiswick Town Hall, to half-mast and books of condolence have been placed across public buildings in the borough to help residents pay their respects in writing.
