Cemeteries

This Church has (or had) 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 in 1904, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1912 records "there is a Wesleyan Chapel adjoining the Whitworth Institute grounds, erected in 1904". Though not mentioned by Kelly, it is known to have been built to replace Darley's first Wesleyan Chapel in Two Dales, described elsewhere in this database.

The first Chapel was not, so far as I am aware, registered for marriages, but its replacement was, as the following notice in The London Gazette of 26th February 1907 (p.1408) indicates:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named WESLEYAN CHURCH, situated at Main Dale-road, Darley Dale, in the civil parish of Darley, in the county of Derby, in Bakewell registration district, was, on the 21st February, 1907, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6th and 7th Wm. IV, c.85. Dated 22nd February 1907.

Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide includes records of baptisms at "Darley Dale Chapel" for the period 1902-1984, a register (presumably) which was begun at the Two Dales Chapel.

Denomination

Now or formerly Wesleyan Methodist.

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