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

We don't know when this Place of Worship was founded, but we understand it was closed by 2007.

This former meeting place for Jehovah's Witnesses, like two others previously in Bolsover, first came to my attention in a notice in The London Gazette of 24th July 2007 (p.10644), as one of a list of buildings which were "no longer used by the congregations on whose behalf they were recorded for worship". The address given was "Kingdom Hall, 81A Shuttlewood Road, Bolsover".

Maps in the 1962 series show #81 as a detached property of average size, but in a larger than average plot, next to a house named "Appleton Lodge".

Old Maps indicate this building, or one like it, had been built by 1918, but the above notification in the Gazette does not include a record of when it was first registered for worship, only of closure. And the site is now (2011) occupied by a private house, too recent to be a 1900s property, so I assume the original is now long gone.

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.
