Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded in 1668, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when.

There is a small Quaker Burial Ground somewhere around this location, described as close by the driveway to Ford Hall, in "More Curiosities of Derbyshire", by Frank Rodgers (2000) on p.63. ISBN 085100-132-7. The gateway to the enclosure has an inscription 'Friends Burial Ground 1668'. Inside the enclosure are 6 gravestones, one with a date of 1671. Further details, and a photo are available in the book.

It is also recorded on the British Listed Buildings website.

Chestnut Farmhouse, mentioned on the site appears now to be The Chestnut Centre. The area is also labelled on maps as "Slackhall".
