1921 – 2021

Following the sad news of the death of His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh, we know that many people will want to express their condolences. However members of the public are not encouraged to sign any books of condolence locally and should use the any available online books of Condolence.  Spennymoor Town Council is following national guidance by asking the public to be mindful of the national public health advice too. During the current public health situation Spennymoor Town Council will not be providing physical books of condolence. Instead anyone wishing to express their condolences can do so through an online book of condolence available to sign on The Royal Family website at The Royal Family.


Similarly people are not encouraged to lay flowers and wreaths due to the pandemic. Donations instead of laying flowers are recommended but of course not mandatory. The Royal Family has suggested that members of the public may wish to consider making a donation to a charity of their choice in memory of His Royal Highness, instead of leaving floral tributes.
