10 June 1921 – 9th April 2021
Holmes Chapel Parish Council was deeply saddened to learn about the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh on 9th April 2021.
Since his marriage to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on 20th November 1947, he has dedicated his life to serving this nation and being Her Majesty’s ‘Strength and Stay’ throughout their marriage. The Duke was involved with some 800 charities or bodies, with a particular interest in scientific and technological research, industry, the environment and sport. His dedication and steadfastness to the country leaves a legacy that will not be forgotten.
May he rest in peace.
