Cemeteries

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 in 1822, but we understand it was closed in 1895, and the premises are now in secular use.

The return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/449/1/23/42) for the Primitive Methodist Chapel in Youlgreave at that time described a separate building, erected in 1823, used exclusively as a place of worship. It had free sittings for 110, and 60 "other" sittings, and the estimated congregation on March 30th was 108 in the afternoon, and 140 in the evening, with 34 and 40 Sunday Scholars respectively. The return was completed by Humphrey Shimwell, its Steward, of "Youlgreave near Bakewell, Derbyshire".

Old Maps, and the free newsletter for villages of Alport, Middleton and Youlgrave (2000 edition, pp.2-3) - The Bugle - indicate it was situated in "Bank Side" (Bankside), a narrow passageway off the south side of the main street through the village.

It was replaced by a new building on the opposite side of the main street in 1895.

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.
