Coventry City Council’s Libraries and Information service are offering to assist residents in signing the Council’s online Book of Condolence for HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh by taking their messages over the phone.

While the Book of Condolence is available online on the Council’s website for anyone to view and leave a message, the Council recognises that some residents may require some assistance with accessing the online book to leave a message.

Any resident who would like some help signing the book should call our Libraries and Information Service on 024 7683 2314. The team will take down the resident’s message and then will enter it into the Book of Condolence.

The phone lines are open Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm.
