Why do we ask for this information?

It is with the deepest sadness that Henley Town Council hears of the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. 



Statement from The Mayor of Henley-on-Thames, Councillor Ken Arlett:

“On behalf of Henley Town Council, Councillors, staff and residents of Henley-on-Thames, we send our deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen, and all members of the Royal Family.  His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh dedicated many years of his life to public service, not only to our own country, but also the Commonwealth.

The flag on the Town Hall will be flown at half-mast until after the Ceremonial Royal Funeral of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.”

Paying Our Respects

 On behalf of the people of Henley-on-Thames, the Mayor and Deputy Mayor will honour the National Minute’s Silence at 3pm on 17 April 2021 on the steps of the Town Hall.

The following day, a Letter of Condolence will be sent from the Mayor to the Royal Household. A picture of HRH The Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh is displayed outside the town hall in a black frame as a mark of respect.  We would ask that during this time of COVID, that mourners do not lay flowers, but remember the Duke in other ways. 

There is no official arrangement for giving donations in memory of The Duke of Edinburgh. Members of the public who wish to make a donation as a tribute to His Royal Highness are encouraged to give to a charity of their choosing or one of the charities or organisations which The Duke of Edinburgh supported in his public duties. You can find more information here

Book of Condolence

Due to current Covid regulations the Council is unable to offer a book of condolence for members of the public in the Town Hall. An Online Book of Condolence is now available here on the Royal website for those who wish to send a personal message of condolence
