In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.


Loving and merciful God, we entrust our Queen

 Elizabeth II to your mercy.


You loved her greatly in this life.

now that she is freed from all its cares,

give her happiness and peace for ever.


The old order has passed away.

welcome her now into paradise

where there will be no more sorrow,


No more weeping or pain, but only peace and joy

with Jesus, your Son, and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.



All praise and glory are yours, Lord our God,

for you have called us to serve you in love.

Bless all who have grown old in your service

and give them strength and courage

to continue to follow Jesus your Son.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.


Blessed are those who have died in the Lord.

let them rest from their labours

for their good deeds go with them.


Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with you. Blessed

art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,

 Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now,

and at the hour of our death. AMEN


Glory be, to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

 world without end. AMEN
