We, the people of the Civil Parish of Shirebrook are united together during this period of National Mourning following the passing of our late Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth II on 8th September 2022. Our sadness at this time is shared by people across the globe, as we remember with affection and gratitude, the lifetime of service given by our longest reigning Monarch.

However, the basis on which our monarchy is built, has ensured that through the centuries, the Crown has passed in an unbroken line of succession.
