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 1891, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1932 records Totley as 1 mile south-west of Dore, formerly a township in the parish of Dore, which was constituted a separate ecclesiastical parish in 1924. All Saints is described as a building of stone, with 250 sittings. The living was (in 1932) a perpetual curacy, in the gift of the Bishop of Derby, and had been held since 1924 by the Rev. Robert Jermyn Hutton M.A. of St John's College, Cambridge.

Previous editions of Kelly, of 1891, 1895 and 1912 record that "Divine Service" was held every Sunday in the Voluntary school here. Bulmer's Directory of 1895 notes that Dore and Totley are divided by the Totley Brook. More recently, Totley, like Dore, was transferred to the City of Sheffield (partly in 1928 and fully in 1933), and to the diocese of Sheffield in 1975. Sheffield Archives hold records of baptisms at All Saints for 1924-1965, and marriages 1925-1992.


Now or formerly Church of England.

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


This Church is located at OS grid reference SK3079879677. 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...)


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 Totley (Dore), and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole. The links also serve as a reminder to myself as to where I found the information, and as an adjunct to my own research, if I found a topic of particular interest.
