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 1956, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when.

The roots of Methodism in Chaddesden can be traced back to a deed held by Mr and Mrs Waite of 22 Chapel Lane Chaddesden, when in August 1828 a shop and ground was sold by Mr William Hingley to appointed Wesleyan Methodist Trustees, which was subsequently converted to a Methodist Chapel.

The Trustees sold the chapel to Frank Coleman of Spondon in August 1923, and Methodists met in Chaddesden School until 1935, when the old day school was converted into a Methodist Church.

A new church was opened in 1956 in Chesapeake Road; however this has been since superseded by Mayfield Road Methodist Church, and the Chesapeake Road premises are now the Chesapeake Community Centre. [Source: St John's Methodist Church, Allestree website]
