The Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Jeff Green, said:
“We have lost a much-loved and respected Sovereign who, for 70 years, demonstrated an extraordinary sense of duty and devotion to our country, people and to public service.
“The Civic Service on Sunday will give us another chance to reflect on, and give thanks for, her exceptional life.”
The Dean of Liverpool, Revd Canon Dr Sue Jones, said:
“Sunday is an opportunity for the people of Merseyside to pay their respects for a monarch who devoted her life to faithful service of her people.
“Her life was a model of devotion displaying her solid faith in God during all that time.
