NATIONAL BOOK OF CONDOLENCE
An online national Book of Condolence is expected to be launched at https://royal.uk soon.
Following advice from the Royal household and Cabinet Office there is a request for people not to gather or lay flowers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In agreement with other Nottinghamshire Councils, the Council is therefore following this advice at this stage and we will of course keep this under review.
