Leverington Village Mourning Arrangements for HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh


1921 – 2021

It is with deep regret that the people of Leverington received the sad news of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.  At this particular time it is difficult for us to convey the depth of our sympathy and feelings of loss.

The people of Leverington have a very deep affection for His Royal Highness Prince Philip and for the whole of the Royal Family.

Like the rest of the country we will mourn his passing but also remember with affection and happiness his life and support for Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family.  Our thoughts are with Her Majesty the Queen and the rest of the Royal family who are mourning not just the loss of a beloved husband, but the loss of a father, grandfather and great-grandfather

Jim Downes, Chairman, Leverington Parish Council


During the Period of Mourning :-

The Bells of St Leonard’s Church will be tolled at 12 Noon on Sunday 11th April 2021, ninety nine times, once for every year of HRH Prince Philip’s life

A Book of Condolence is available to sign on line at ‘Deep sadness’ at the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh – Fenland District Council

Alternatively, this is a link to the Buckingham Palace e-Book of Condolence   –   https://www.royal.uk/

Anyone who is unable to sign an On-line Book of Condolence and who wishes to express their sympathy in writing may do so on a post card and deposit it in the box located in the Village Store/Post Office at Church End, Leverington.  At the end of the Mourning Period the post cards will be placed in a Book of Condolence.

Anyone wishing to express their sympathy with flowers are encouraged to make a donation to a charity of their choice instead, which corresponds with national guidance and the wishes of HRH Prince Philip

The Union Flag in the Cemetery will be flown at Half Mast for the duration of the mourning period
