Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel 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 1887, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

This Congregational Chapel was built in 1887 on the east side of Derwent Street. It was designed by J. Tait, of Leicester, who also designed the Green Lane United Reformed Church building in Green Lane.

It was sold to the Primitive Methodists in 1926, possibly closing in 1932 when Primitive Methodists joined other Methodists to become the Methodist Church of Great Britain. The building was then used for other purposes, until it was demolished during post-War reconstruction of the city centre.

The Derbyshire Record Office hold a register of marriages, from 1899-1924 at the chapel.

Denomination

Now or formerly Congregational.

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