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 1881, and we understand it is still open.

There is a photograph of the Zion Primitive Methodist Chapel on the Geograph website. It is built largely of brick, but has unusual lozenge-shaped stonework above and around the windows and central doorway. Above the doorway is a lintel with the inscription "Primitive Methodist / Zion Church", above which is a small plaque which commemorates "Zion Centenary", 1881-1981. There is a row of 12 foundation stones set into the brickwork just above the foundation level, with inscriptions, possibly of those who founded the chapel? The front looks rather gloomy, but it has a very impressive extension on the south side. The building is on the west side of Market Street, a short distance north of Lees Lane, and to the north of one of the former Methodist Free Churches in South Normanton.

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.
