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 1836, but we understand it was closed in 1960, and the premises are now in secular use.

According to Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Derbyshire (1986) the first (smaller) of these chapels was built in 1836-7 for seceders from the Wesleyan Chapel built 1813 in Wesley Street, who supported the Wesleyan Methodist Association. The larger chapel was built in 1860, and the old chapel became a Sunday School.

Kelly's Directory of 1932 records that at that time it had a United Methodist congregation. Both buildings are however now in secular use, the former being both a glass works, and the home of Old Glossop Cricket Club.

The above information is provided by the booklet Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Derbyshire (1986). A further account of the chapel's history is available on a webpage provided by the Glossop Heritage Trust - Glossopdale Churches and Chapels.


Now or formerly United Methodist.

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