We believe the Chapel 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 1869, but we understand it was closed in 1962.

Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide includes records of baptisms 1869-1959, and marriages 1885-1958 for "Mount Zion Methodist Chapel", and a note that Hall Road was known as Back Street before about 1902. They also say it opened in 1901, which cannot be the case when a record of baptisms exists from 1869!

The following notice was published in The London Gazette of 6th February 1962 (p.1017) indicating its closure:

The Registrar General, being satisfied that MOUNT ZION CHAPEL, Hall Road, Brimington, in the registration district of Chesterfield, in the county of Derby, is no longer used as a place of worship by the congregation on whose behalf it was on 15th December 1884, registered for marriages in accordance with the Marriage Act, 1836, has cancelled the registration. Dated 30th January 1962.

This notice confirms a presence prior to 1901, so perhaps the DRO's date of opening refers to a rebuild that year.

Old Maps show it had a Sunday School next door, on its right. This appears to have been the site used for building the present Brimington Methodist Church, whilst the former Mount Zion Chapel has been demolished, and replaced with a Doctor's Surgery.


Now or formerly Free/United 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.


This Chapel was located at OS grid reference SK4038873473. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:


I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Brimington, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
