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 1901, but we understand it was closed in 1962.

An account of the history of Dale Road Methodist can be found on St John's Methodist Church, Allestree website. This is (I believe) the church referred to as built in 1901, as a consequence of population growth in Old Normanton. When it was closed in 1962, it was taken over by the Serbian community and it is now the Serbian Orthodox Church of Apostles St Peter and St Paul.

A title of 'Darley Street and (Lower) Dale Road' is recorded in Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide; however 'Darby Street' appears to be the correct street name.

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.
