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 1856, but we understand it was closed in 1966.

Details of this chapel are provided by various Directories, and by the Belper Research website, which also provides photographs showing it in 1930, and in the 1960s. It was built in 1856, with seating for about 700, and cost £1,000. It was a large rectangular brick building, of two stories, with a gallery round three sides, and seating made of pitch pine. Underneath the chapel were a Sunday School and classrooms.

It was built originally for a congregation of Wesleyan Reformers; by 1895 it was, according to Kelly's Directory of that year, "Methodist Free (Salem)", and by 1932, "United Methodist". It was demolished in 1966 at the same time as Field Head Primitive Methodist Chapel.

Denomination

Now or formerly Wesleyan Reform/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.
