New emblem for next of kin of islanders who die in service

Sunday 28 April 2024


A new commemorative award announced by the UK government for the next of kin of those killed in the line of duty has been extended to Jersey.

Bestowed by the King, the Elizabeth Emblem is a national form of recognition.

The award is the civilian equivalent of the Elizabeth Cross, to remember those who have lost their lives in their role of public service.

People will be eligible if they have been employed by, on behalf of, or formally funded by the UK Government, the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government, the Northern Ireland Executive, local government, a Crown Dependency or a British Overseas Territory.

The design of the Elizabeth Emblem incorporates a rosemary wreath, a traditional symbol of remembrance, surrounding the Tudor Crown.

It is inscribed ‘For A Life Given In Service’ and will have the name of the person to be commemorated inscribed on the reverse of the emblem.

The award also includes a pin to allow it to be worn by the next of kin of the deceased.

Islanders interested in submitting an application can send one to Government House, and not directly to the Cabinet Office as stated online.
