Warminster Town Council: Delivering a brighter, greener future for all

Her Majesty the Queen

9 September 2022

Warminster Town Council is deeply saddened that Her Majesty the Queen passed away on 8 September 2022.

The Queen has ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history. The Queen was a constant presence, carrying out her duties with grace and dedication providing unfaltering public service until her passing.

Books of condolence can be signed at Warminster Civic Centre, The Minster Church, The Chapel of St Lawrence, Christ Church and at Warminster Library.

An online book of condolences can be found at Wiltshire Council:

Tributes will be shared and you can send your messages and thoughts until the books are closed the day after the funeral.

Floral tributes can be left by the Chapel of St Lawrence, in the High Street.  Tributes should not contain plastic or cellophane.  The flowers will be removed on the morning after the funeral and will be composted.

There will be a local proclamation by the Mayor of Warminster on Sunday 11th September at 1.15 pm outside the Civic Centre. Members of the public are invited to attend.

The Mayor of Warminster Councillor Chris Robbins said:

“It is with great sadness we received the news that Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II passed away yesterday afternoon. Our sincere condolences go to her family and Royal Staff.

We will always remember the devotion to duty to our country with grateful thanks – a promise so wonderfully carried out in her lifetime.”

“Thank goodness we were able to celebrate the platinum anniversary back in the summer, it meant so much to all. We will always remember the scene ‘Tea with Paddington Bear’ and the marmalade sandwiches. Indeed, the Queen will live on in our thoughts. Truly a life to be celebrated.”
