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 1928, but we understand it was closed by 1931.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 15th May 1931 (p.3158) indicates the duration of this Mission Hall:

NOTICE is hereby given that the Place of Meeting for religious worship, described as GOSPEL HALL, situated at Ground Floor, Wye-street, in the civil parish of Buxton, in the registration district of Chapel-en-le-Frith, in the county of Derby, which was duly certified for worship on the 18th day of December, 1928, 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 & 19 Vic., c.81, from the 14th day of May, 1931. Dated 14th May 1931.

There is no indication in Wye Street today where the meeting place may have been, so the location below is approximate.

Perhaps it was a forerunner of the Gospel Hall on the south-east corner of the junction of Hardwick Square and Darwin Avenue; and so the above closure notice provides an indication of when they took over the building from the Catholic Apostolic Church.

Denomination

Now or formerly Mission Hall.

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