His Royal Highness Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh

10 June 1921 — 9 April 2021

The Dean and the Chapter and the entire cathedral community extend our deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and her family following the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh. We assure her of our prayers for her and her family in their time of grief and our prayers of thanksgiving for the long life of service Prince Philip gave to our nation and to the Commonwealth. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.

An online Book of Condolence has been set up at Guildford Cathedral for any members of the community who would like to add their name in thanksgiving for the life of Prince Philip and the lasting contribution he has made to the life of our nation and the Commonwealth.

Garden Project

We are engaged in a community project as part of the wider People’s Cathedral outreach. 

One of the initiatives within this is a gardening project to enhance the exterior of the newly refurbished Cathedral. We are keen to provide volunteering opportunities to those for whom our traditional roles are unsuitable, either due to learning difficulties or mental health issues. We have strong working relationships with local organisations that have volunteers awaiting placement for these gardening roles. 

In order to facilitate this we are seeking corporate funding for 12 large planters for placement around the Cathedral grounds.

We are delighted that we have already secured sufficient funding for three planters from
