THE PRINCE PHILIP
DUKE OF EDINBURGH
In line with Government advice,
the Local Council has not issued a
Book of Remembrance to Parishes; instead both the Royal Family and the Church of England have set up an on-line book where you may pay your respects. I expect there may be more but if you type in Book of Remembrance for Prince Philip they will all come up
