Burford Town Council: Statement Following the Death of Queen Elizabeth II



Burford Town Council wishes to express, on behalf of itself and all the residents of Burford, its deepest sympathy to the Royal Family on the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

We have lost a great Monarch. Through a long and sometimes tumultuous reign she remained enormously hard working, patient, humane, assured and forward–looking. She was quick to recognise the good in and done by others because she was a good woman herself, unfailing in her support for causes she believed in and for those who served her in the Armed Forces and the Emergency Services. She endured personal troubles with fortitude and official duties with dignity. It is trite to say so but nevertheless true – we shall never see her like again.

The Council flag will fly at half-mast for the official period of mourning. A Book of Condolence will be open daily from 09.00am to 5.00pm daily at the Chapel of the Holy Spirit in St. John the Baptist Church from 3.00pm Friday 9th until Monday 19th September.

Flowers may be laid at the west door of St. John the Baptist Church in a designated area.


Peter Higgs

Mayor of Burford
