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 1845, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when, and the premises are now in secular use.

The Temperance Hall in Measham is mentioned in Kelly's Directory of Derbyshire of 1895 as built in 1845. It was then used for public meetings and entertainments, and had seating for 200. In the present day, it is in use by Age Concern.

A photograph of Measham, Temperance Hall on the Geograph website, records that it dated 1852 - presumably according to the inscription on the "foundation" stone over the doorway. This is difficult to read from the Google StreetView image, but it may say: "This Stone / of a Temperance Hall / was laid by the / Venerable / ??? Christian Bourk, ??? / ?? ???? of the Isle of Man / in the year 1852 / ??? ??? ???".

Denomination

Now or formerly Non-denominational.

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

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

Please also remember that the former Temperance Hall is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
