Hungerford Town Council wish to express their sadness following the news of the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. Our sympathies are with the Queen and the Royal Family at this difficult time.

We join with the country in mourning as we remember Prince Philip’s extraordinary life, devoted to Her Majesty the Queen and a lifetime of public service.

Flags at the Corn Exchange, Royal British Legion, Bridge Street War Memorial and outside the Council office will be flown at half-mast until after the funeral service.

Due to current Covid-19 regulations, Hungerford Town Council will not be using physical Condolence Books. However, if anyone would like to leave a message of condolence, you can ‘sign’ the official electronic version available at If you are unable to access this electronically, please contact the HTC office at or by phoning 01488 686195 and we can help you.

In line with Covid-19 regulations and the wishes of the Royal Household, we are asking residents not to leave any floral tributes. Instead, you could consider making donations to a charity of your choosing or one of the charities or organisations which The Duke of Edinburgh supported in his public duties.
