Cemeteries

We believe the Church does 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, and we understand it is still open.

According to Derbyshire Record Office's Online Catalogue, Duckmanton Methodist Church was built in 1939 "after meetings had been held intermittently from 1928".

Their account adds that the building was damaged by a bomb in December 1940, but this statement may not be wholly correct. According to Tom Bates account of the 1938 Markham Colliery Disaster on Tom Bates 'About Derbyshire' website, it was the local school which was bombed, and the chapel served as a temporary classroom whilst it was being repaired.

The present building is probably not the original. In fact, the Methodist Church at Inkersall, erected in 1955, appears to be identical, so perhaps it was replaced then.

Denomination

Now or formerly 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.

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 Duckmanton, 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.
