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 1854, but we understand it was closed in 1965.

Kelly's Directory of 1912 records a Primitive Methodist chapel in Holloway, built in 1883, also mentioning "the old chapel built in 1852", which became the Sunday-school. This latter chapel is also mentioned in William White's Directory of 1857, when its foundation is stated as 1854: "the Primitive Methodists have a small chapel here erected in 1854, it is a neat stone building in the old English style of architecture, and will seat about 120 hearers". If it were 1852, it would have been the same year as John Smedley erected his church, now Holloway Methodist Church.

Unfortunately, the Google "Street Car" hasn't visited Chapel Lane, so it hasn't been possible to ascertain whether the Primitive Methodist Chapel is still in existence; however its position is shown on Old Maps, for instance OS 1880 1:2,500, as "Methodist Chapel (Primitive)", with later maps also showing a Sunday school nearby.

Old Maps also show that Holloway had Wesleyan Methodist, and United Methodist Chapels. Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide records the latter, now Holloway Methodist Church, as "Trinity Methodist Church", and notes that it was amalgamated with "Mount Zion" in 1965. It is not known which of the Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist Chapels may have been known as "Mount Zion", but it seems probable both congregations would have merged with "Trinity", possibly giving rise to the combined congregation subsequently adopting the name "Trinity".


Now or formerly Primitive 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.
