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 1942, but we understand it was closed by 1950, and the premises are now in secular use.

This former meeting place for Jehovah's Witnesses first came to my attention in a notice in the following notice in The London Gazette of 30th May 1950 (p.2700) cancelling its registration for marriages:

NOTICE is hereby given that the Place of Meeting for religious worship described as KINGDOM HALL situated at Front Room, Ground Floor, 42, Market Place, Bolsover, in the registration district of Chesterfield in the county of Derby which was duly certified for worship on the 15th day of October, 1942, has wholly ceased to be used as a Place of Meeting for religious worship by the congregation on whose behalf it was so certified, and that the Registrar-General has caused the record of the certification thereof to be cancelled pursuant to the Act 18 and 19 Vict., cap. 81 from the 24th day of May 1950. Dated 24th May 1950.

Old Maps of 1962 indicate that #42 Market Place is on the south-east side, in a terrace of older properties, now occupied by retail outlets.

A new Kingdom Hall was opened at 27 Cotton Street by 1957, for which see the 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.

Maps

This Church was located at OS grid reference SK4734570467. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:

(NB I know the first two don't work as intended - the Jury's still out as to what to do about it...)

Resources

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 Bolsover, 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.

The default is to list 10, but you can specify How Many you want to see, up to a maximum of 100.

You can further refine your search by supplying other search terms.

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 Kingdom Hall (1940s) is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
