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 in 1807, and we understand it is still open.

The congregation meeting in this chapel was formed in 1807. Its first meeting house was opened in 1809, in a disused factory, but the present building dates from 1830. Its datestone, above the north doorway, reads 'General Baptist Chapel, and has the letters 'I' 'T' either side of the date, apparently the initials of James TAYLOR. The adjacent building - a two-storied Sunday School and vestry 'range' - was added in 1877. [Source: Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Derbyshire (1986)]


Now or formerly Baptist (Independent Evangelical).

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


This Church is located at OS grid reference SK3457242854. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:

(NB I know the first two don't work as intended - the Jury's still out as to what to do about it...)


I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Duffield, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole. The links also serve as a reminder to myself as to where I found the information, and as an adjunct to my own research, if I found a topic of particular interest.
