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 in 1928, but we understand it was closed in 2005.

Mentioned in Kelly's Directory of 1932 as "Junction Baptist Chapel, situated in Uttoxeter Old road ... will seat 580 ... completed in 1928 at a cost of £6,500". It is not mentioned in Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide, although the congregation was in fact founded in 1855.

Sadly, this church was closed to Baptist worship in 2005, as a consequence of an arson attack. It was however reopened in 2010 as a meeting place for followers of an Indian faith, for those who had met previously at a house in Bemrose Close.

Meanwhile the previous attendees of the Baptist faith are meeting at 'The Firs' Primary School, in Raven Street.

Denomination

Now or formerly Baptist.

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