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 1633, and we understand it is still open.

Edale was originally a chapelry of Castleton. Its first church was erected in 1633, but was rebuilt in 1812, as indicated by a block in the wall of the old graveyard. Its building was demolished in March 1855 and the materials incorporated into a new church on a fresh site about 100 yards opposite. The site of the old churches now forms the old burial ground.

Edale was created a separate parish in 1863. [Source: Derbyshire Ancestral Research Group]

The following information about the Church has been provided to accompany the photographs on the right. A list of people who have supplied the information is included in the Acknowledgements, below.

[Image 1] The Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity was designed by architect William Dawes, built during 1885-6, and completed by addition of the broach-spire in 1889. Broaches are what you can see at the four corners of the tower supporting the spire - "sloping half pyramids adapting an octagonal spire to a square tower".

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