Cemeteries

We believe the Church 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 1845, and we understand it is still open.

This building is recorded in Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Derbyshire (1986) as one of two Methodist Chapels in Brailsford. This one was the Primitive Methodist, identified as having a three bay front. It is a single storey brick building, having two windows on either side of the entrance doorway, all three having trapezoidal stone headers. Possibly at a later date, a two-storey extension was added, which may have been a Sunday-school room. It has a small bell turret with a pyramidal coping at the mid point of its roof. Note: though architecturally they share some features, these are not the buildings described on the British Listed Buildings as the School, and School House, which are further to the east.

The Main Road through Brailsford, where the chapel is situated, is the A52 Ashbourne to Derby Road, described in Kelly's Directory of 1895 as the "Old London Road".

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.
