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 before 1895, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

This was one of two known Methodist Chapels in Shirland, within a short distance of one another. This one is first noted on OS Maps of 1899, 1:2.500 simply as "Chapel", whilst the other Chapel is labelled as "Methodist Chapel (Primitive)". Kelly's Directory of 1895 records both chapels, one as Primitive Methodist, the other as Free Methodist; thus this one must have been Free Methodist. Note, however that earlier Maps mark the other chapel as "Methodist (United Free)", so possibly this chapel was built for Free Methodist seceders from the earlier chapel.

It was in existence as late as 1995, as it is marked on my OS Derbyshire Street Atlas of that year, but it is certainly closed today. I am unable to determine whether the building meetings were held still survives, as it was situated behind existing housing in Church Street, and wouldn't have been visible from the street.

Denomination

Now or formerly Free 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.
