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 1849, and we understand it is still open.

A small building, which appears to have been always "Independent" Methodist, though it is not mentioned by any of my Directories. It has a central doorway, with matching lancet windows on either side, with diamond-panelled glazing, similar to the glazing in the windows of Windley Chapel, near Duffield. There is a plaque above the doorway which reads: 'Salem Independent Chapel' '1849'.

The Derbyshire Record Office hold a transcription of baptisms at the chapel for the period 1892-1991, and the Derbyshire Ancestral Research Group have transcribed the memorials. There is no sign of a graveyard, so it is assumed these are from inside the church.

Just up the road, and opposite the crossroads where Malthouse Lane meets Watson Lane is "The Great Pool of Stubbing", a large expanse of water, apparently natural.

Denomination

Now or formerly 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.
