Leverington Village Mourning Arrangements for HRH Queen Elizabeth II


HRH Queen Elizabeth II


1926 – 20??

It is with deep regret that the people of Leverington received the sad news of the death of Her Majesty the Queen.  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 her Majesty and for the whole of the Royal Family.

Like the rest of the country we will mourn her passing but also remember with affection and happiness her long reign.  Our thoughts are with Prince Philip and the rest of the Royal family who are mourning not just the loss of a monarch, but the loss of a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother

Jim Downes, Chairman, Leverington Parish Council
