The St John family received the news of the passing of our Sovereign Head Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with the greatest of sorrow.

Her Majesty has exercised her role as Sovereign Head of the Order with great distinction and has been the focus of the respect and affection of the Order around the world. We all are immeasurably grateful to her.

At this time of great sadness members and friends of the St John family may wish to express their sympathy. Pages of condolence will be available for signature and comment at each of the worldwide St John Establishments until the end of the official 12 day mourning period. They will then be bound and placed in the Order Museum.
