Cemeteries

This Church has (or had) 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 1839, and we understand it is still open.

This is one of two entries listed in Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Derbyshire (1986) under "Heanor". The building is described as of brick, with a three-bay front, and rebuilt parapet with date 1839. The front is masked by a newer building of 1974, giving the overall appearance as a "new" church. There was a centenary hall alongside, dated 1804-1904; and the remains of the burial ground to the rear, where there is a memorial to George, son of George and Ann Bryan, born 1818, 'who by a wise but Mysterious Providence was suddenly removed into eternity while bathing in the river Trent at Gainsborough Septr. 7th 1840'.

Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide mentions there is a transcription of baptisms here for the period 1840-1903, but there is no mention of a burial register.

This is surprising, perhaps, as old postcards on the Picture The Past website show the chapel having an extensive burial ground at the front as well. The latter, of course, has now been cleared, and the centenary hall demolished - in their place is a driveway, to provide access to car parking at the rear of the building, and on the right, part of a supermarket.

It seems a shame the original facade has been lost, but the chapel does, nevertheless, look "bang up to date".

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.
