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 1938, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

A place of worship is marked with a '+' at this position on my OS Map of 1987. More detailed Old Maps of 1938 and 1960-1961 show a building labelled as "Hall" on the north-west corner of Manvers Street and its junction with New Linden Street; the 1938 Map also shows another Hall on the north-east corner, which by 1960-1961 has become a "Club". Thus it hasn't been possible to determine its provenance. It does not appear to have been either a Baptist Chapel, or Congregational Church. According to pages on the website ("Where did we go to Church?"), the latter was in Church Drive, and the former a much smaller (possibly temporary) building.

One possibility is that both buildings were opened to serve the leisure and cultural needs of the new housing in New Linden Street, which at the time of OS 1918 was a Timber Yard. However today, both plots are occupied by private houses.


Now or formerly Community Hall.

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 was located at OS grid reference SK5293367836. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:
