Today, the State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II took place at Westminster Abbey at 11am. 

The Mayor of Walsall, Councillor Rose Martin, attended St Matthew’s Church in Walsall this morning and lit a candle on behalf of the Borough before joining others to watch a broadcast of the State Funeral on the big screen in the church and participate in the national two-minute silence. 

The Mayor of Walsall, Councillor Rose Martin, said, “Watching the State Funeral was a moving experience, and it was a fitting tribute to her extraordinary reign. Amid all the pomp and pageantry, what came across was the love and respect felt by the Nation as the country said goodbye to the longest serving monarch this country has known.”
