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 1974, but we understand it was closed after 1976, and the premises are now in secular use.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 26th March 1974 (p.3937) indicates the Salvation Army once had a Citadel in Mosborough High Street:

A building certified for worship named SALVATION ARMY HALL, High Street, Mosborough, Eckington in the registration district of Sheffield in the County Borough of Sheffield, was on 15th March 1974 registered for solemnizing marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949, as amended by Section 1(1) of the Marriage Acts Amendment Act, 1958. Dated 20th March 1974.

Unfortunately, it has been impossible to determine where this actually was, as it is no longer in evidence, and does not appear on any of the Maps I have access to. The location indicated on the Maps below therefore indicates an approximate location in the commercial centre of Mosborough, where the Post Office, Hairdresser's and other premises are situated.

It was probably closed when a more permanent meeting place was found in 1977, in the former Primitive Methodist Chapel in Queen Street, which had closed the previous year.

Denomination

Now or formerly Salvation Army.

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

This Church was located in the town/village nearest OS grid reference SK4254781139. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:

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 Mosborough, Eckington, 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 Salvation Army Hall (High Street) is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
