Tributes to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

On 8 September 2022 Buckingham Palace announced the death of Her Majesty The Queen. A period of national mourning commenced with the announcement and will continue until the state funeral on Monday 19 September 2022.

Pembury Parish Council would like to express their deep sadness at the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

She was loved and respected world-wide for her sage wisdom, steadfast dedication to service, and her great sense of humour, as display by the many messages received from Heads of State around the world. She was a consummate professional, with the air of an approachable granny, and was never happier than when in the country with her dogs, horses and beloved Phillip. How fitting that her final months were spent in one of the places she loved most, entertaining friends and family, what marvellous memories those days will have made.

We will be opening a book of Condolence in the entrance porch of St Peters Upper Church, or you can sign the online book by visiting If you would like to leave a floral tribute, please leave them in front of the wall on the front lawn of St Peter’s Church, thank you.

On behalf of the Council and our residents, we would like to send sincere condolences to the family.

A Book of Condolences will be available in the entrance to St Peter’s Upper Church, Hastings Road. Floral tributes may be placed in front of the wall on the front lawn of the Church.

There is also an online Book of Condolence or you may also wish to send a message of condolence to the Royal Family.

The nation will hold a minute’s silence at 8pm on Sunday to mourn the Queen’s death and reflect on her life and legacy. People are invited to mark the occasion privately at home, on their doorstep or street, or at community events and vigils.

The above information will be kept under review and updated as further information becomes available.
