Books of Condolence and Other Arrangements

St Cuthbert’s Church – Memorial Service and Book of Condolence
A Memorial Service is being held at St Cuthbert’s Church, Over Kellet at 7.00pm on Wednesday, 14th September.  Please see the separate notice.

A Book of Condolence for residents of Over Kellet and members of St Cuthbert’s church will be available in church from Sunday, 11th September until after the funeral on 19th. This will be a local record of the sentiments expressed by local people on the death of a national figure and will form part of the church’s and Parish Council’s archive, so that future generations are able to find out the way in which national events were marked in the area.  The church will be open from 9am – 3pm during this time for those who wish to sign the book.

Wilson’s Endowed CE School – Book of Condolence
 A Book of Condolence has been introduced and the Headteacher has encouraged parents to come and sign it.  He has also kindly offered that parishioners will be most welcome to do so during school hours.  The book is placed just inside the entrance way, next to a display celebrating the Queen’s life.
