Gracie Spinks: Pictures as Chesterfield says emotional goodbye to beautiful 23-year-old with guard of honour and horse-drawn carriage procession

Hundreds of Chesterfield people lined the streets this morning to say their own goodbyes to Gracie Spinks.

Residents, young and old, turned out in huge numbers to pay their respects as Gracie’s funeral cortege took the keen equestrian on her final ride, in a horse-drawn carriage to Old Whittington’s St Bartholomew's Church.

Many dressed in purple or in horse riding attire as requested by the funeral directors to honour Gracie’s life.
