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 before 1960, but we understand it was closed before 2009, and the premises are now in secular use.

The location of Creswell's former Catholic Church of Christ the King can be best seen on Old Maps in the 1983 series, on the west side of Sheffield Road, just to the north of its junction with Baker Street. As of a StreetView of October 2009, the site is occupied by a retail outlet - "Direct Factory Kitchens" - which may be a conversion of the original building. The address given on their website for their showroom in Creswell of "Kings Hall, Sheffield Road" suggests it is, but I am unable to provide direct confirmation of this.

A Wikipedia article on Creswell indicates the Church was built in the late 1950s; and as "Christ the King" it is still listed in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010); however as suggested above, it must have closed long before this date.

I have not found any notices in The London Gazette which indicate it was ever registered for marriages.

Denomination

Now or formerly Roman Catholic.

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