Bank holiday for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's State Funeral

14 September 2022

On Monday 19 September 2022 there is an additional bank holiday in the UK to mark the final day of mourning of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and to coincide with her State Funeral.


Usual bank holiday working arrangements will apply but please speak to your line manager for clarification around specific arrangements for your service area. In some cases, services will need to continue operating over the bank holiday but as discussions around this are ongoing, please be patient if your manager is not yet able to confirm arrangements.

We will continue to fly the Union Flag at half-mast and light County Hall in purple overnight throughout the period of national mourning. Our books of condolence also remain open at County Hall and a number of our libraries.
