The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn is deeply saddened by the news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The Queen visited the Inn several times during her long reign, most recently on 13 December 2018 to open the new Ashworth Centre and reopen the Great Hall (pictured above). All who were there remember her generosity, warmth, and good humour.
The Inn’s flag will be lowered to half-mast as a mark of respect and the Chapel bell will toll in her honour.
The Preacher and choir will lead a short lunchtime service in the Old Hall in commemoration of Her Majesty on Thursday 15 September. The service will start at 1.05 pm and will last approximately 30 minutes. All members of the Inn are welcome.
A Book of Condolence will be opened at Lincoln’s Inn and available in the Library for members to sign. The Book will close at 8 am on Tuesday 20 September, the day following The Queen’s state funeral. The book will be retained in the Inn’s archives as a record of our respect for the service and leadership which The Queen provided to the nation for over seventy years.
