Barton Manor to Host the Cross of the Romanovs Events this Summer


The Grand Duchess Elizabeth Romanov Society (UK) will be hosting a Centenary Commemorative Programme on 6th – 8th of July 2018 in East Cowes, Isle of Wight. 

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the brutal murder of the Russian Imperial Family. The programme includes the unveiling of a monument to the memory of Tsar Nicholas II and his family, including the Grand Duchess Elizabeth, widow of the Grand Duke Sergius of Russia.

The Russian Imperial Family was closely related to the British Royal Family and paid several visits to Cowes. The Town Council of East Cowes is co-organizing the commemoration.

Apart from the unveiling of the monument to the Imperial Family, who have been glorified by the Russian Orthodox Church as “New Martyrs and Passion-Bearers”, which will take place near Osborne House in East Cowes, the packed and varied programme will include an exhibition – THE CROSS OF THE ROMANOVS – dedicated to their last days and to their connections and exchange of visits with the Windsors. 


The exhibition at Barton Manor, which the Romanovs visited in 1909, will include many Romanov personal belongings, photographs and holy objects on loan from different countries. 

You are cordially invited to join us at this historic event. For further information on these events, please contact the Society at the email and/or telephone number shown in the poster above.
