RIP to a beautiful unique Queen, you make the country very proud. I have very good memories of coming to London which I'll never forget. Deepest sympathy to the whole of the family. Angels will protect you and now you're at peace with Philip 😢♥️
Nicola Marsland, Dukinfield
R.I.P. Your Majesty. A great lady, a great mother and grandmother, a great monarch, our amazing Queen Xx
Sheila Danson, Stalybridge
Grief and love are sisters, woven together from the beginning. Their kinship reminds us that there is no love that does not contain loss and no loss that is not a reminder of our love. To love is to accept the rites of grief. God bless our beautiful Queen Elizabeth.
Liza Loughran, Cheshire
Our deepest sympathy to all her family on the passing of our beloved Queen, reunited with the love of her life. Rest easy now, your long service is over xx
Kath and John Clegg, Ashton
The Queen was a remarkable woman who dedicated her life to service, to this country and to the Commonwealth. She will be missed by millions across the globe but fondly remembered. Her spirit, dignity, strength, wisdom and indomitable sense of duty will live on forever through her family, whom my thoughts are with at this difficult time. RIP Your Majesty. God Save The King.
Adam Higgins, Glossop
I will always remember her for her utter dedication to duty and our country. Her bright smile and sense of humour always shine through and her incredible work ethic was inspiring.
Lisa Brown, Mossley
Thank you for your lifetime of service to this country Your Majesty, and for your wicked sense of humour. Rest in peace, reunited once again with your beloved husband.

Kay Harrison, Oldham
I danced in the street on the day of the Queen’s coronation and sang about her ‘riding in a golden coach’. It is scarcely believable that she has left us. May she rest in peace reunited with her beloved husband.

At the age of three, I was lucky enough to have given the Queen flowers when she visited Stalybridge. I still feel honoured and privileged to havd done this. She served her country and Commonwealth and its people well and never faulted in her duty. The world will be a sad place without her in it. Her shining light is now dimmed, but the memories people have will never diminish. I thank you for your service your Majesty. You truly deserve Rest In Peace. God bless you.

Barbara Anderton, Mossley
I was 10 years old attending Rice Lane Primary School in Liverpool. It was a time of rationing. We had all made Union Jacks on cardboard, coloured with crayons and stapled to a rolled paper stick. The whole school lined Rice Lane awaiting the Queen, who had recently been crowned, making a visit to Liverpool. When the cars were in view we all cheered and waved our flags. As the royal car passed me I saw the Queen, she waved to me and smiled and I still believe our eyes met. I later told my mother of how the Queen smiled at me. My Mum smiled at me and said " Yes , she smiled at everyone." That wave and smile has stayed with me to this day. I later realised she had the ability to give her wave and smile to all with great sincerity. But that smile was for me.
Stanley Broderick, London
