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 1916, but we understand it was closed in 1972.

St Andrew's Mission Hall (or Mission Church) is first noted on Old Maps of 1916. It would appear from an earlier Map of 1898 that it took over a former school building, when a new school was built on the opposite (south) side of the road.

By 1961 the school had disappeared, and the Georgina Jackson Memorial Hall - a long narrow building - had been built on the west side of the plot.

The church was demolished in 1972, and six years later, according to Work in progress on the Victoria County of History of Derby it was replaced by a new building in Glapwell - an L-shaped prefabricated concrete structure - on the east side of Rowthorne Lane. The latter was dedicated as St Andrew's Church Centre in 1978.

The site of St Andrew's Mission Hall is now a car park. It isn't clear what has happened to the Georgina Jackson Memorial Hall, but that appears to have been demolished as well.

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.
