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 before 1899, but we understand it was closed by 1999.

The first documented evidence of a Salvation Army presence in Church Street is in Kelly's Directory of 1899 - the Derby Street Directory labels it as "Salvation Army Chapel". Curiously, though it does not appear on Old Maps until 1949, when it was labelled as a "Mission Hall". It was not until Maps of 1971 that it was labelled specifically as a Salvation Army Hall. It is built of brick, with a white stucco frontage of 3 bays, containing a tall window on either side of a a central doorway, and one larger window above the doorway. All 3 windows have a shallow arched capping, in red brick, with a white keystone. There are 5 bays in the north side, containing 3 large rectangular windows, 2 smaller ones, and another doorway in between, providing access from a side parking area.

In more recent times, the Salvation Army have vacated the premises, and it is now the home of the Full Gospel Church of God, which was registered for marriages in 1999, as per a notice in The London Gazette of 24th September 1999 (p.10245) Church Road itself is now a cul de sac at the upper (north) end, and the lower end has been redeveloped as a small park. There is a footpath through the park which follows the original road line, which ran from Lower Dale Road in the north, in a south westerly direction to Upper Dale Road, and St Augustine's Church. The street itself, and the houses it contained, are listed in Kelly's Directory of 1895, but the Salvation Army Chapel and St Augustine's Church are not, so why it was called Church Street is at present unknown.

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.
