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 1900, and we understand it is still open.

"Heanor Free Church" is listed in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) with a congregation of "Christians not otherwise designated".

Its first known appearance as a place of worship on Old Maps is in 1900 where it is labelled as "Christians Meeting House". Kelly's Directory of 1912 records a meeting house for the Christian Brethren in Heanor, so I would suspect these were one and the same.

The following notice appeared in The London Gazette of 28th November 1967 (p.13016) indicating its closure as such:

The Registrar General, being satisfied that CHRISTIAN'S MEETING HOUSE, Midland Road, Heanor in the registration district of Ilkeston in the county of Derby is no longer used as a place of worship by the congregation on whose behalf it was on 2nd January 1905, registered for marriages in accordance with the Marriage Act, 1836, has cancelled the registration.

A corresponding notice appeared on 4th January 1968 (p.183) recording "HEANOR FREE CHURCH, Midland Road, Heanor" as once again available for the solemnising of marriages.

Denomination

Now or formerly Christian Brethren.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
