Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel does 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 in 1866, and we understand it is still open.

Tissington's "small Primitive Methodist chapel" is mentioned in Kelly's Directories of 1895 and 1932, but without a date of foundation. The present building has a date stone of what appears to be '1935' from Google StreetView (but in fact '1955'), so presumably it is a rebuilding, as Old Maps as early as 1880 show an existing building on the same site.

It appears to have closed some time before 1995, as it is not shown with a '+' on my Derbyshire Street Atlas of that date; however I discovered more recently it had reopened. In fact in the present day (2018) it has its own website, including a Church History, which explains that the original Chapel was erected around 1866, and the present building is in fact dated 1955. For details see the page for Worship in Tissington on the website of the Ashbourne Methodist Circuit, of which it remains firmly a part.

Denomination

Now or formerly Primitive Methodist.

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

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
