The books of condolence for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be open at all three North Kirklees Town Halls in Dewsbury, Batley and Cleckheaton.

Once closed, at the end of the mourning period, the books will be bound and placed in the Kirklees Archive as a record for future generations of the way in which this event was marked in the district.

The town halls can be found at:
