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 after 1900, but we understand it was closed in 2001, and the premises are now in secular use.

Stancliffe Hall School was founded in the early 1900s by the Rev. Ernest Owen, former headmaster of Llandaff School in Wales.

Old Maps of 1922 show it labelled as "Preparatory School for Boys", with an associated Chapel, a separate building, and by Maps of 1967, marked specifically as "private".

After the school closed in 2001, the remaining pupils were admitted to nearby "St Elphin's", previously an all-girl school, but that too was to close in 2005.

St Elphin's School site has now become the focus of "Audley St Elphin's Park" - a retirement village; whilst (as far as I can tell), Stancliffe Hall is now a hotel and conference centre.

Denomination

Now or formerly School/College Chapel.

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

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 Darley Dale, 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.

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 Stancliffe Hall School (Private) is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
