Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel 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 1841, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when.

According to Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Derbyshire (1986), this chapel was built in 1841 by Joseph Bourne, a local potter. There is a tablet in the gable inscribed "Wesleyan Chapel Anno 1841", but in 1850 its congregation were to join the Wesleyan Reform movement.

Our photograph shows the United Methodist Sunday School, which stands to the right of the Chapel. The plaque on the wall of the building reads "United Methodist Sunday School 1909".

Hill Bank is on the Codnor side of Denby, some distance from the centre of the village.

Denomination

Now or formerly Wesleyan Methodist/Wesleyan Reform.

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