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 before 1851, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when, and the premises are now in secular use.

The return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/449/1/16/28) records a place of worship with no name in Over Haddon for a Primitive Methodist congregation, founded in premises which were not separate, but were used exclusively as a place of worship. It had free seating for 40, and an estimated congregation on March 30th of 14 in the afternoon and 16 in the evening, and average over the year of 20. The return was completed by William Mellor, a Deacon, who gave his address as "Over Haddon, nr. Bakewell, Derbyshire".

He added that "The Tenant who granted the Loan of part of a Dwelling House is about to quit on the 6 April: whether the next Tenant will allow it to be continued as a place of Worship I do not Know". And neither do we now, as the only permanent building for nonconformist worship in Over Haddon to be built in later years was for Wesleyan Reformers, and at that time there was (in general) no connection between the two Methodist sects.

Denomination

Now or formerly Primitive 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.
