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 by 1956, but we understand it was closed by 2014.

The Gospel Halls UK and RoI website for England lists Killamarsh's Ebenezer Hall as being in Bridge Street, though that may be a referral to the "Old" Ebenezer Chapel, formerly on the east side of Bridge Street, but now demolished, described elsewhere in this database.

Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) also list "The Old Ebenezer Gospel Hall" in Bridge Street, with a congregation of Assemblies of God; whereas their "new" Ebenezer Gospel Hall is registered with an address "off" Bridge Street, and with a congregation of Brethren.

I believe the latter entry refers to a building first shown on Maps of 1956, labelled as "Ebenezer Gospel Hall", which may well have been approached from Bridge Street originally, but today is reached from Stanley Street.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 27th January 1956 (p.588) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Building certified for worship named EBENEZER GOSPEL HALL, off Bridge Street, Killamarsh, in the registration district of Chesterfield in the county of Derby, was on 23rd January, 1956, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949. Dated 25th January 1956.

Whilst obviously the building was extant when our photograph was taken (April 2010), it appears from a Google Satellite view of (December) 2014 that it has now been demolished.

The Gazette has been searched after this date, but no notice of closure has been found.

Denomination

Now or formerly Brethren.

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