Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel 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 by 1884, and we understand it is still open.

Originally known as Matlock Wesleyan Chapel, and later (1932-1965) Trinity Methodist Church, this building is now Matlock Methodist and United Reformed Church. Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide says its first building was at Matlock Bridge, erected in 1840, then rebuilt (presumably in its present position, off Bank Road), in 1890. It also provides the information that its baptism registers before 1949 include entries for whole of Matlock Trinity Circuit and its predecessors.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 5th September 1884 (p.3998), recording its registration for marriages, suggests the new building was erected before 1890:

NOTICE is hereby given, that a separate building, named Wesleyan Chapel, situate at Bank-road, Matlock Bridge, in the parish of Matlock, in the county of Derby, in the district of Bakewell, being a building certified according to law as a place of religious worship, was, on the 13th August, 1884, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act 6th and 7th Wm. 4, cap. 85, being substituted for the building known as Wesleyan Chapel, Matlock Bridge, now disused. Dated 16th August 1884.

Its predecessor is described elsewhere in this database. See also Ann Andrews' excellent webpage of Matlock Churches and Chapels.

Denomination

Now or formerly Wesleyan 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.
