Hammersmith & Fulham Book of Remembrance

White rose

Sadly, many of us in Hammersmith & Fulham have now experienced losing relatives, friends and loved ones to the terrible coronavirus.

Our hearts go out to you all. To remember them, we have launched this online book of remembrance for you to pay your respects and share tributes.

Cllr Stephen Cowan, Leader of Hammersmith & Fulham Council, is leading the tributes with his own personal message:

I know all our residents share my deepest and heart-felt condolences for all those who have lost loved ones during this terrible pandemic. I understand the sense of loss and how that's compounded by this dreadful situation. My thoughts and sympathies are with you.”

Your dedications and uplifting messages of hope are welcome here too.

Francisco Silverio, Aparecida Silverio, Gonçalo Silverio
Francisco Silverio and I grew up together. He was 50yo, healthy, married and had children. In less than a week he lost his mother and father, had a sister in hospital with Covid-19 and then died of the disease. He got admitted to hospital without knowing his parents were dying. His older sister survived. They were my neighbours and he was also my friend
