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 in 1878, but we understand it was closed in 1979.

Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide refers to this place of worship as "Town Street Methodist Church". Records exist of marriages for the period 1957-1977 - apparently no baptisms took place here.

Its position is shown on Old Maps, with the designation of "Wesleyan Methodist", and it was situated in what may have been the "old" centre of Sandiacre, near to the parish church of St Giles. In later years, there was a Sunday School built next to it, and together, one can imagine they made an imposing pair. However, both of them have now been demolished, and their site occupied by modern housing.

It was built in 1878 to replace an earlier chapel, dating from 1827. Surprisingly, perhaps, the original Chapel has survived, and has been incorporated into a modern day electrical store (Comet). For more details, see the old postcard of Town Street, which shows both Methodist Chapels, and in the background, the spire of St Giles's Church - part of Claire (Lady Wilfrun)'s Flikr photostream.

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.
