Information from ‘Your Waverley’ following the death of Her Majesty The Queen


Death of Her Majesty The Queen


Queen Elizabeth II

21 April 1926 – 8 September 2022

It is with the greatest sadness that Waverley Borough Council has learnt of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on 8 September 2022. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time.

Please visit The Royal Family website(opens in a new tab) for general information and the national book of condolence.

We will update this page regarding national protocol and how Waverley will be commemorating Her Majesty The Queen as these details are confirmed.

Book of Condolence

Books of condolence will be available to sign at the Waverley Borough Council Offices in Godalming during our standard opening times, or at Godalming Museum, at the Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul and at St John’s Church in Farncombe. 

You can also sign an online book of condolence on The Royal Family website.


Flowers can be laid at the Pepperpot in Godalming or at the Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul.

  • Flowers should not be wrapped in paper or plastic
  • Flowers not placed in the designated area may be moved to the official area
  • Gift cards and other items will not be kept
  • Flowers will be removed the day after the funeral and be composted

Rather than purchasing flowers, you may wish to consider making a donation to one of the Queen’s chosen charities. More information on the Queen’s official patronages is available on The Royal Family website.
