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 in 1885, but we understand it was closed in 1998.

According to Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide the chapel opened in 1885. The congregation merged with Ashbourne Road United Reformed Church 100 years later, in 1985, after which the URC premises were sold. The premises proved to be inadequate for the joint congregation, so it was decided to build a new church. The old building was demolished, and worshippers used the Methodist Church Sunday school premises for a while, until the new combined Methodist and United Reformed Church was opened in 1998.

The photograph shows the gate post, and plot of land where we understand the chapel used to be. [Source: The Methodist Church website, and 'A History of Methodism in Derby and District' on St John's Methodist Church, Allestree website]

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.
