Books of condolence
Books of condolence will be opened at Frome Town Hall and St John’s Church and will remain open until 5pm on the day following the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
St John’s Church will be open 9am-5pm Monday-Friday.
Frome Town Hall is open 9am-5pm Monday-Friday.
An online book of condolence is open on The Royal Family website.
For those that do not have internet access and are unable to attend the Town Hall or St John’s, arrangements will be made for residents to send by post handwritten messages which will then be typed or assimilated into the physical book.
Floral tributes can be left outside St John’s Church on the grass just inside the archway. Please remove any packaging from flowers laid as they will later be collected for composting and used to plant a commemorative tree for Her Majesty The Queen. Any flowers left elsewhere in the town will be carefully relocated to the main display outside St John’s Church by our Ranger team.
