A book of condolence for the Queen Mother has been opened at the British Consulate in Palma and yesterday one of the first people to sign was the Consul, Michael Banham. The flag at the Consulate is also flying at half mast. The book of condolence will remain open until the funeral next week. The Consulate is open from 9a.m. to 3p.m. Monday to Friday. Also yesterday the Reverend Robert Ellis announced that a Memorial and Thanks Giving Service for the Queen Mother would take place at the Anglican Church in Palma this Sunday at 5p.m. The Consul will be reading a passage. A large number of people are expected to attend. More than 350 people attended a Memorial Service at the Church in 1995 following the death of Princess Diana. The Bulletin will be providing further details of the service later this week. The Queen Mother was greatly respected in Spain and national and local newspapers have given her death considerable coverage.
