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 before 1957, and we understand it is still open.

When I first prepared this account in 2010, I was able to establish its site, marked with a '+' on my OS Street Atlas, and from above, satellite view, it looked like a church, but it was quite a different story on my StreetView drive past as it was looking like a building site, so evidently there had been some work going on at that time.

The immensely valuable Derby Methodist History website tells us that it opened in 1958, with its first members coming from the Primitive Methodist Church on Burton Road and from the United Methodist Chapel in Becket Street.

There is information about Becket Street Chapel elsewhere in this database. Alternatively, you may want to visit The Methodist Churches in Derby (Derby Methodist Circuit) for information relating to the present day.

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.

Maps

This Church is located at OS grid reference SK3295034437. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:

(NB I know the first two don't work as intended - the Jury's still out as to what to do about it...)

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 Littleover, Derby, 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.

Search for other Places of Worship in Derbyshire

Search Tips:

You can specify either a Place, or OS Grid Reference to search for. When you specify a Place, only entries for that place will be returned, with Places of Worship listed in alphabetical order. If you specify a Grid Reference, Places of Worship in the immediate vicinity will be listed, in order of distance from the Grid Reference supplied. The default is to list 10, but you can specify How Many you want to see, up to a maximum of 100.

You can further refine your search by supplying other search terms.

Please note the above provides a search of selected fields in the Derbyshire section of the Places of Worship Database on this site (churchdb.gukutils.org.uk) only. For other counties, or for a full search of the Database, you might like to try the site's Google Custom Search, which includes full webpage content.

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

Please also remember that whilst the above account may suggest that Littleover Methodist Church remains open and accessible, this may not remain so.
