Residents may choose to express their sadness by laying flowers; in order to manage such activity safely, the Town Council has identified the following sites within the parish:

Should you wish to lay flowers during the period of mourning, you may do so at

Richmond Park, around the flag pole.

War Memorial, Parnell Street

Outside the Guildhall in Gainsborough


We would kindly ask that you remove any form of wrapping from the flowers before laying them.

At the end of the mourning period, the day after the funeral, the flowers will be removed

All flowers will be taken away to be composted and a tree will be planted in the town, in memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, following the coronation of King Charles III.
