We believe the Church does 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 1950, and we understand it is still open.

Buxton Spiritualist Church is situated on the east side of Holker Road, in between Spring Gardens, and its junction with Curzon Road. The following notice in The London Gazette of 3rd June 1952 (p.3087) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named BUXTON SPIRITUALIST CHURCH situated at Holker Road, Buxton in Chapel-en-le-Frith registration district in the county of Derby was on the 26th May 1952, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949. Dated 29th May 1952.

Possibly this was the Church's second home in Buxton, as a notice of cancellation of the registration of "NEW BUXTON SPIRITUALIST CHURCH situate at One Room, Second Floor of Melrose Cafe, Spring Gardens, Buxton" was published in the Gazette of 23rd January 1951 (p.437). Its original registration was on 28th April 1942.

More information about this - when meetings were held "above shops and in houses" - is available in the "About Us" section on Buxton Spiritualist Church website. See also the church's entry on the Spiritualists' National Union website.


Now or formerly Spiritualist.

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

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Buxton, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
