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 1898, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when, and the premises are now in secular use.

St Mary's Parish Church Room, as it was known on Old Maps of 1898, is situated on the north-west corner of the junction of the High Street with Church Lane. The latter, of course, leads directly to St Mary's Church. The first Vicarage to appear on Old Maps was adjacent to the graveyard, but by 1923, a new Vicarage had been built next to the Church Room. By Maps of 1969, it had become known as the Church Hall.

There is an old photograph of it described as "Beighton Church Hall, High Street" on the Pictures Sheffield website. The caption on the photograph is "The School", but a series of postings to Sheffield Forum on the subject (dating from 12th December 2012) suggest its use as a school was on a transient basis, and that Beighton School was a separate building erected in School Road in 1880. The photograph shows it had a steeple originally, but this was apparently removed as part of alterations to the building after WWII.

It is not known when it was closed for ecclesiastical purposes, but in the present day, it still in Community use, now known as the Beighton Lifestyle Centre.


Now or formerly Church of England.

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