Service of Commemoration to be held at the Cathedral for Queen Elizabeth II

On behalf of Herefordshire Council, our councillors and residents, we offer our heart-felt condolences and sympathy to all members of The Royal Family. We join the people of the United Kingdom in national mourning.

The Lord-Lieutenant of Herefordshire, Mr Edward Harley OBE, has announced details of a Service of Commemoration in thanksgiving to God for the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II.

The service will be held on Sunday 18 September 2022 at 3.30pm in Hereford Cathedral and will be led by The Dean of Hereford.

Key representatives from across the county have been invited to attend.

Members of the public are welcome to attend the event. Space is limited, so organisers are advising people to get there early to ensure a seat. There is no parking at the Cathedral, so attendees with vehicles will need to consider using public car parks in the city.

The Service of Commemoration will also be live-streamed on the Hereford Cathedral website.

Books of Condolence are available for signing at locations throughout Herefordshire until the day after the funeral, to commemorate and celebrate fond memories of Queen Elizabeth II throughout her life.

Tributes are being left at designated locations across the county.

As a moment of reflection, a national one minute silence will take place on Sunday 18 September at 8pm.

Flags across Herefordshire will continue to fly at half-mast as a sign of respect until after the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on Monday 19 September.
