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 before 1958, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

This Church first came to my notice on an Old Map of 1962. It was situated on the south-west corner of the junction of Ilkeston Road with Locton Avenue, opposite Westfield Avenue, and just past one of the drives to Marlpool Cemetery. It was registered for marriages, as the following notice in The London Gazette of 16th December 1958 (p.7679) indicates:

A Building certified for worship named SACRED HEART CHURCH, Ilkeston Road, Marlpool, Heanor, in the registration district of Ilkeston, in the county of Derby, was on 9th December 1958, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949. Dated 11 December 1958.

It was quite a large building, but today, it has been demolished, and its site occupied by new housing.

Denomination

Now or formerly Roman Catholic.

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