Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel 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 in 1904, but we understand it was closed before 1955.

This place of worship was first noted on Old Maps of pre WWII, OS 1919-1920 1:2,500 whilst looking for another one in King Street, which was marked with a '+' on my Derbyshire Street Atlas of 1995. This building must have closed by then, as it was not marked; and now (2012) it appears to be in industrial use, known as "Chapel Works".

The above Old Map shows it had a Sunday-school attached to its right; and then, as now, it backed onto the railway line. It is last seen on OS 1956 1:10,560; the next available map being 1961, on which it is not marked. In fact, the Whitwell Local History Group - Churches and Religion webpage says it was opened in 1904, closed in the early 1950s, and provides further details of its use since then. The official notification of its closure was recorded in The London Gazette of 9th April 1954 (p.2135) in a list of buildings which "have wholly ceased to be used as places of worship by the congregations on whose behalf they were certified"... Its original certification was dated 1st May, 1905.

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.
