Hounslow Council have opened books of condolences across libraries in the borough.
Today, Friday 9 September, the following public buildings are open for residents to write in the books of condolences:
All libraries will be open on Saturday and more books will be opened then. To keep up to date with where books of condolences are available please visit the Councils website.
Residents can also post messages through our online condolence book.
We understand you may wish to open your own book of condolence during the period of National Mourning.
There is no set format for a book of condolence. The layout of the table is usually a trestle table on which the book is placed with a white tablecloth, an arrangement of flowers (usually lilies or other white flowers) and a framed formal photograph of Her Majesty. This could be an official portrait photograph, or one taken at a previous Royal visit. As a mark of respect, a black ribbon could be wrapped around the top of the right-hand corner.
The Royal Household and the government will not be able to receive books of condolence.
