It is customary for mourners to leave floral tributes. During this time of National Mourning, the government and the Royal Household respectfully request that no official flowers, wreaths, or tributes be sent from organisations to the location of the State Funeral, Royal Residences or government offices.

Those wishing to leave floral tributes are asked to do so in the area around the War Memorial adjacent to Appleton Gate (at the rear of St Mary Magdalene Church).

All floral tributes will be collected the day after the funeral and will be composted. We therefore ask that in line with the wishes of the Queen herself that no plastic wrappers are included to allow for ease of composting.


Making a donation to one of Her Majesty’s many charities and patronages may be considered a fitting way of paying tribute to Her extraordinary legacy. Read further information on how you can donate and a list of Her Majesty’s charities and patronages.
