Support for clients on the day of the Queen’s state funeral – 19 Sep

We are deeply saddened by the death of Her Majesty The Queen. Our thoughts and condolences are with the Royal Family as we mourn the loss of our longest serving monarch.

On the day of the funeral, Monday 19 September, all Gray Dawes offices will be closed, to allow our colleagues to pay their respects. We shall be operating a skeleton staff of home-based Travel Consultants, along with our Out-Of-Hours operation, to provide support for clients.

From the Gray Dawes family to the Royal Family, our thoughts and thanks for Queen Elizabeth’s decades of outstanding service to our country are with you, as are our best wishes of support to King Charles III.
