Condolence books open across Auckland

Condolence books for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II are now in place at Auckland Town Hall and all 56 Auckland Council Libraries.

A book of condolence will be available for the public to sign at the Auckland Town Hall from:

  • Monday to Friday – 9am to 5pm
  • Saturday and Sunday – 10am to 5pm

“On behalf of Auckland Council and the people of Auckland, I want to pass on to the Royal family our sympathy and sense of loss for the passing of Queen Elizabeth II,” said Auckland Mayor, Phil Goff.

“For most of us, she was the Queen and Head of State for New Zealand over the entirety of our lives.

“She pledged herself in her early twenties to the service of her nation and the Commonwealth. It was a pledge that she honoured for her whole life.

“She served with commitment and integrity and provided continuity and stability as Head of State.

“It was a privilege to meet her personally on a number of occasions during her many visits to Auckland and New Zealand.”

All condolence books are expected to remain in place until The Queen’s memorial service.

Those wishing to lay flowers in remembrance of The Queen can do so on the balcony outside the Auckland Town Hall. This is the area under the clock tower that overlooks Aotea Square.
