Leave Letter For Condolence


A leave letter for condolence is a letter written to inform of one’s leave to his/ her superiors as one would be attending a funeral. It is a formal letter. Keep the letter polite and to the point. Mention the details of your leave like when and for how long you will be absent. If your absence will create any inconvenience make sure you dispel their fears and tell how you will make up for your absence. It can be written to your boss in the office or your teacher in your school or college.

Death is inevitable and when such a tragedy strikes, you have to be your near and dear ones to provide them with a moral support through their grief. It is only polite to inform the authorities at your workplace or school about it and take an official leave. Check for any type of errors as it won’t look good on your part.

Subject: Leave for condolence

Respected Sir,

I am Scarlett O’Hara, working as an assistant designer under the Head Designer of Clothes Over bros, Miss Brooke Davis. I have been working here for the past three years. I am writing you to inform you of a three-day leave that I will be taking starting from today that is 26th April 207. I will join the office on 28th April 2017.

My grandfather Mr. Gerald O’Hara passed away late in the afternoon. I learned about it while I was still in the office. He was a corporate lawyer. He was already suffering from a heart condition from the past 10 years and one month ago that took a toll on his health. He was admitted to the Intensive care unit, one month ago and his condition was deteriorating since then.

There is a funeral for him and then there is a wake. All our relatives, friends, his colleagues, and well-wishers have started to come for his funeral and show their respect towards him. He was a great man and touched so many lives.

I hope you would understand the need to take a three-day leave and grieve for him. It is a great loss for me and my family. I will surely catch up with my work on time.

Thanking You.

Yours Sincerely,

Scarlett O’Hara
