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 by 1943, and we understand it is still open.

A comparison of Old Maps of 1879-80 and the present day indicate that today's Assemblies of God Church in Bonsall is a former Primitive Methodist Chapel, built in 1852. This is confirmed in the booklet Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Derbyshire (1986), and also in the excellent book Bonsall, A Village and its History (2006, p.136).

The following notice in The London Gazette of 15th June 1943 (p.2742) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named ASSEMBLY OF GOD CHURCH situated at High Street, Bonsall in the civil parish of Bonsall in Bakewell registration district in the county of Derby was on the 8th June 1943, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6 and 7 Will. IV, c.85. Dated 10th June 1943.

This appears to have been the only chapel in Bonsall to have been registered for marriages. Neither the Baptist, nor the Methodist chapels appear to have acquired the same status.


Now or formerly Assemblies of God.

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