Cemeteries

We believe the Church did NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded after 1955, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when, and the premises are now in secular use.

This building is first seen on a 1960 OS Map 1:2,500, labelled as All Saints Hall, so it appears to have been built in the late 1950s, to serve the needs of the new housing estate. It is still marked as a place of worship on my Derbyshire Street Atlas of 1995, but now appears to be wholly secular. It is classic 1950s, built of brick, and single-storey, with a cross on either gable.

The following may be of no significance, but I think it's worth mentioning that the map also shows a building labelled "Glenorchy Hall", to the north west of All Saints Hall. Willielma Campbell, Lady Glenorchy (1741-1786) became an influential figure in 18th century non-conformism, following a religious conversion whilst recovering from illness. Her mentor during the time of her conversion was none other than the sister of Rowland Hill, the evangelical Anglican preacher; and particularly after 1771, and the death of her husband, she devoted a lot of her wealth to furthering evangelical causes.

At the time of the 1960s Map, Glenorchy Hall shared frontage with All Saints Hall onto "Queen Elizabeth Way", which (I assume) was built after the Coronation of Her Majesty the Queen in June 1953. There is no sign of the Hall today, however, and its plot appears to be occupied with more recent housing.

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
