Council launches Book of Condolences to remember loved ones lost to coronavirus

An online Book of Condolences is being launched by the Council today (Monday) to remember family, friends and colleagues lost to the coronavirus crisis, ahead of the anniversary of the first lockdown next week.

Hackney has, like many communities across the country, experienced a high number of deaths from coronavirus, each one a tragic loss which must be remembered. 

Residents are being offered the chance to to leave a message of condolence which may be published online as part of a celebration of the lives of those we have sadly lost over the last year. 

Speaker of Hackney, Cllr Kam Adams
The coronavirus pandemic has been a tragic and unprecedented time of loss for families and communities across Hackney. 

This Book of Condolences is a chance for members of the community to remind us that behind every fatality Hackney has suffered, there is a person with a story. 

If you or someone you know has lost a loved one to coronavirus please share memories of them with us so that we can reflect and celebrate their lives.
Speaker of Hackney, Cllr Kam Adams

We will review all messages before they are published. Residents will be able to read the tributes on our messages of condolence page, which will be published shortly.
