Book of condolence tour

Following the death of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Representative Deputy Lieutenant for Lambeth, Christopher Wellbelove DL, was keen to make sure that as many people as possible were given the opportunity to sign Lambeth’s book of condolence.

Working with Lambeth council officers, and with the support of the Mayor of Lambeth, Christopher visited 10 residential homes across the borough. Here he heard many stories from residents, of their memories of the Queen. He met Trevor who had served in the Queen’s Guard, and another resident spoke of how he was a pilot for Her Majesty.

Whilst books of condolence were available at the Town Hall and at libraries in the north and south of the borough, without these visits their residents and staff would not have had the opportunity to participate by sharing their condolence alongside their fellow Lambeth residents.
