HRH The Duke of Edinburgh
10th June 1921 - 9th April 2021
It is with profound sadness that Swettenham Parish Council learns of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh at the age of 99.
Our condolences are extended to Her Majesty and all members of the Royal Family and the Royal Household.
Swettenham is a civil parish and village in the unitary authority of Cheshire East and the ceremonial county of Cheshire. The parish comprises the villages of Swettenham and Kermincham and is situated some five miles north-west of Congleton on the banks of the River Dane, which flows though the Parish in a delightful and unspoilt valley, breaking up the flat but well-wooded country lying to the north and south. To the east the plain rises gently to a background formed by the East Cheshire Hills. The parish comprises the ancient church of St Peter’s, one pub - The Swettenham Arms and numerous farms and various other small businesses mostly run from home.
