Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel 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 before 1877, but we understand it was closed after 1995.

This place of worship is marked on Old Maps, for instance OS 1876-1977 1:2,500 as "Methodist Chapel (Primitive)". Later maps, for instance OS 1899 1:10,560 label it as a Mission Room; and its position is still marked as late as my Derbyshire Street Atlas of 1995, and later. Recently renovated stonework gives it a fresh, modern appearance, but there are signs of a plaque above the doorway which has eroded, indicating the building itself is old.

Wadshelf was very well supplied with Methodist Chapels, as there was a Wesleyan Chapel just a short distance away.

Denomination

Now or formerly Primitive 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.
