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

We don't know when this Place of Worship was founded, but we understand it was closed about 2005.

This building was previously St Christopher's Church, mentioned as a Chapel of Ease to St Thomas's (in Pear Tree Road) by the Derbyshire Record Office's catalogue of Church of England Registers, and in Kelly's Directory of 1912, which provides its address as Shaftesbury Crescent. As "St Christopher's Mission Church", it is shown on Old Maps of 1951-1952 at the same location as the building in our photograph.

It is listed in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) as "St George's Ukranian Autocephalous Orthodox Church" with a congregation of "Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox". However in actual fact it has now closed. An article "Bid to build flats on disused church site" published in the Derby Telegraph website on 3rd June 2010 makes this apparent in its statement that "St George's Church, in Shaftesbury Crescent, Normanton, has not been used for five years after numbers of worshippers dwindled".

Denomination

Now or formerly Ukrainian Orthodox.

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