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 by 1957, but we understand it was closed by 1959.

This former meeting place for Jehovah's Witnesses first came to my attention in a notice in The London Gazette of 21st April 1959 (p.2642) recording the closure of "Kingdom Hall, First Floor, 27, Cottam Street, Bolsover" in a list of buildings which "have wholly ceased to be used as places of worship by the congregations on whose behalf they were certified"... I assume "Cottam" is a misrendering of "Cotton", in which case #27 can be seen on Maps of 1962 on the west side of Cotton Street, south of its junction with Middle Street - in an area now cleared and part of the Cotton Street car park.

This would have been the second meeting place for Jehovah's Witnesses in Bolsover. An earlier registration of the ground floor of 42 Market Place as a Kingdom Hall was cancelled in 1950. But it was to be another 7 years before the Cotton Street premises was first registered, dated in the above notice as 25th March, 1957.

A new Kingdom Hall was not to open in Bolsover until the turn of the century, after 2001, for which see the separate entry in this database.

Denomination

Now or formerly Jehovah's Witness.

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