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 1881, but we understand it was closed in 2009.

Kelly's Directory of 1895 records that there was a Catholic chapel in Measham, dedicated to St Charles, which was built in 1881. It also records that there was a school attached.

The following notice published in The London Gazette of 16th April 2009 (p.6462) records it had become disused:

A Building certified for worship named ST CHARLES' CHURCH HALL, Bosworth Road, Measham in the registration district of Leicestershire, in the non-metropolitan county of Leicestershire, was on 10 October 2008 registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act 1949 as amended by section1(1) of the Marriage Acts Amendment Act 1958. In lieu of St Charles' Church, Measham now disused and the registration cancelled thereof. Dated 11th March 2009.

Since then, it has been demolished, and modern housing now occupies its site. The Church Hall, and Primary School, are at the back of the houses, reached by St Charles Court.

Note: Measham was transferred from Derbyshire to Leicestershire in 1897.

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.
