Book of condolence opened at Liverpool Town Hall for public to leave tributes to the Queen

2 years ago

A book of condolence will be opened at Liverpool Town Hall today for the public to leave their tributes to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

From 1pm, the book, which was opened by Mayor of Liverpool and the Lord Mayor, will allow the citizens of Liverpool to express their thoughts and thanks to the former monarch for her 70-year reign.

The Town Hall will be accessible to the public until 8pm on Friday (9 September). Further timings will be announced.

People can also leave floral tributes in memory of the Queen, behind Liverpool Town Hall on Exchange Flags.

If people wish to leave a floral tribute they are asked to remove any cellophane, or plastic wrapping, as once removed the flowers will be used for composting at Otterspool Park.

The city of Liverpool, along with the nation, has now entered a formal 10-day period of mourning and is set to host a number of events to mark the passing of the Queen and the ascension of King Charles III.

People can also write their tribute online at the Royal Family’s book of condolence.

The Queen

Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Cllr Roy Gladden, said:

“It is fitting that our Town Hall – a building Her Majesty always enjoyed visiting – will be one of the places that people can come and pay tribute.

“Over the coming days, we will be giving residents other opportunities to pay their respects and reflect on the Queen’s remarkable reign.”

Mayor of Liverpool, Joanne Anderson, said:

“There can’t be many people who do not have a memory of Her Majesty The Queen visiting the city, whether it was for the opening of the Kingsway Tunnel, the Garden Festival, during the Golden Jubilee celebrations, or when the Queen opened the new Museum of Liverpool.

“Others will also have memories of the many street party celebrations held to mark the Silver Jubilee in 1977.

“The warm welcome always afforded to Her Majesty during her visits to Liverpool is testament to the high regard in which she was held.”
