CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Some Boston residents are mourning Queen Elizabeth II by leaving tributes at the British Consulate General in Cambridge, but the Consulate General asks they be left at other designated areas.

After the news of the Queen's death, people began leaving cards, flowers, and mementos at the British Consulate General to express their condolences, but the office is just one of many in the building. The Consulate General asked residents not to pay tribute there out of respect to the other offices in the building, an employee at the Consulate General told WBZ's Shari Small. Instead, they directed residents to Old North Church in Boston where a condolence book is available for people to sign on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M.

There is also a condolence book for the public to sign at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston. A virtual condolence book is available online.

"Queen Elizabeth was around so long [she] feels like family, and even [at] 96 it's still very sad to lose wonderful people," Ina from Cambridge told WBZ's Shari Small.
