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 1950, but we understand it was closed by 1955.

This Mission Church can be seen on maps of 1950, close to the south-east corner of the junction of White Lane with Charnock Hill Road. It was, presumably, a temporary mission for the growing housing development of Basegreen, prior to the building of St Peter's Church, believed to have been built by 1955. By maps of 1971, the St Mary's building, or its replacement, was occupied by a Library, next door to which was a Clinic. Both buildings have, apparently now been demolished, and replaced by the current Gleadless Library and Health Centre, and its car park.

Old Maps show that the Basegreen area was anciently in the parish of Eckington, Derbyshire; but it was transferred to Yorkshire (West Riding) when it became part of the parish of Gleadless, in 1967. Since 1974, it has also been in the diocese of Sheffield.

Denomination

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.
