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. 

Please send us your message and a picture (if you like) via the online form. We will review all messages before they are published. Messages can be submitted either individually, or as a representative of an organisation.

To everyone who has lost someone...
Dear All
I am deeply sorry for your loss. The world will and must never be the same. Nobody has to endure the excruciating pain of losing a loved one... They are "Heroes", you are "Heroes", we are " Heroes" and my heart deeply goes with you all. The loved ones are protecting the planet and we must honour them by transforming ourselves: NOW. They are the stars above our heads... With all my love x

Samuel Spence
I would like to remember my hard working father, who came to this green and pleasant land in search of a better life, met his wonderful wife, my gorgeous mother, had three children, then my father died from this nasty covid-19, aged 88 but we have hope that there will be a resurrection of the righteous and unrighteousness.
