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 after 1912, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

A Salvation Army Meeting House is listed in Markham Road in Chesterfield, Kelly's Directory of 1932, under "Places of Worship". Derbyshire Ancestral Research Group (DARG) have a record of Memorial Inscriptions there, though it seems unlikely it ever had a graveyard.

The location is as marked on Old Maps, for instance OS 1962-67, 1:2,500, but the premises are now demolished, probably when the Ravenside Retail Park was built. The Salvation Army Chesterfield Corps now meet in St Hugh of Lincoln's Church, in Littlemore Road.

Markham Road (part of the A619, Chesterfield bypass to the south) was built in 1912, following slum clearance of the area, part of which was known as 'Dog Kennels'. The then Mayor, Charles P. Markham, is said to have provided £10,000 from his own pocket, for which, obviously, for his pains the road was named in his favour.


Now or formerly Salvation Army.

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