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 before 1881, but we understand it was closed after 1987, and the premises are now in secular use.

The former St Matthias's Church is an attractive building, with 3 pointed arched windows at its east end, a steeply sloping roof, and inset bell turret, topped with a small steeple. It is now a private residence, but its name, and location may be seen on Old Maps, for example OS 1881 1:2.500. Kelly's Directory of 1932 records it as one of two Mission Churches of Christ Church in Ironville. The other was at Stoneyford, and was dedicated to Holy Trinity.

It has no parish records listed in Derbyshire Record Office's catalogue of Church of England Registers, and its last appearance as a place of worship on OS Maps in my possession is OS 1:50,000 "Mansfield, Worksop & surrounding area", dated 1987.

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.
