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 before 1883, and we understand it is still open.

Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide includes Woodville High Street (Wesleyan) Methodist Church with Woodville and Swadlincote Circuit, which has records for the period 1934-1942; but the register also covers Ashby de la Zouch Circuit before 1870. A Wesleyan Chapel at this position is shown on Old Maps as early as 1883, and Kelly's Directory of 1932 said it was capable of holding "about 1,200 persons"; however it seems likely that present Church is a rebuilding on the original site.

This probably took place in 1966, as the following notice in The London Gazette of 18th August 1966 (p.9138):

A Building certified for worship named METHODIST CHURCH, High Street, Woodville, in the registration district of Repton in the county of Derbyshire, was on 11th August 1966 registered for solemnizing marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949, as amended by section 1(1) of the Marriage Acts Amendment Act, 1958, in place of a building of the same name and address now disused. Dated 19th August 1966.

See the South Derbyshire Methodist Circuit (SDMC-onthenet) - the "Voice of the Methodist Church in South Derbyshire" - for current information.

Denomination

Now or formerly Wesleyan 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.
