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 in 1908, and we understand it is still open.

At the time of Kelly's Directory of 1895, Marlpool had an iron mission church. The present All Saints Church was built in 1908. Kelly's Directory of 1912 describes it as a building of red brick, with stone dressings, and having 362 sittings. At the time, the Rev. Hankin Turvin B.A. was curate in charge.

Sadly, according to Heanor & District Local History website (Marlpool & Langley), this church burned down on Christmas Eve 1949. "The new church was built by F. Sisson and Sons of Langley Mill, who also built the church at Loscoe". Also of interest is their account of the derivation of the name "Marlpool". There was once - literally - a "marl pool" in the area. It was left after a quantity of "marl" (calcium carbonate containing varying amounts of clay, used as a soil conditioner) had been extracted, which subsequently filled with water. It has now been filled in, but can be seen on some old photographs, next to the church.


Now or formerly Church of England.

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