We don't know whether this Chapel had 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 1795, but we understand it was closed in 1990, and the premises are now in secular use.

Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Derbyshire (1986) provides the information that a first Meeting House for the Baptists in Ticknall was built in 1795, and registered in 1803 - 'a new building standing in Bucknall's yard on the South side of the street'. The present chapel is a rebuilding of about 1817, and is built of red brick, with a hipped tiled roof. The west front has wide round-arched windows between two similar, smaller windows, with a doorway to the left.

Its closure was recorded in the following notice in The London Gazette of 15th June 1990 (p.10653):

The Registrar General, being satisfied that BAPTIST CHAPEL, Ticknall in the registration district of Swadlincote in the Non-Metropolitan County of Derbyshire is no longer used as a place of worship by the congregation on whose behalf it was on 2nd November 1908 registered for marriages in accordance with the Marriage Act 1949 (as amended) has cancelled the registration. Dated 1st June 1990.

Though it is now closed and apparently converted into a private house, the Chapel is Grade II Listed Building - see the British Listed Buildings website for details. The latter provides the additional information that inside there's a gallery supported on two iron columns, with a panelled front.


Now or formerly General Baptist.

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

Please also remember that the former Ticknall Baptist Chapel is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
