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 by 1946, but we understand it was closed before 1981.

Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) record "The Old Ebenezer Gospel Hall" in Killamarsh, with an address of Bridge Street, and a congregation of Assemblies of God. A building has been located adjacent to Bridge Farm, labelled as "Institute" on Old Maps of 1923, as "Hall" in 1938, and as "Gospel Mission" in 1971, which seems a likely candidate. It looks almost as though it may have been part of the buildings belonging to the farm, so called, presumably, as it stood by the bridge over the former Canal.

A notice that "Ebenezer Gospel Hall, Bridge Street, Killamarsh" had ceased to be used as a place of worship was recorded in The London Gazette of 9th April 1954 (p.2135) for an original certification dated 23rd March, 1946. Whether this refers to the same building is uncertain, as clearly it was in existence after this date, but the address does match that given in the Registrar-General's list.

Note: Bridge Street was known originally (prior to 1923) as Shepherd's Lane. Ebenezer Gospel Hall, off Stanley Street, is first shown on Maps of 1956, so was contemporary with the Bridge Street building.


Now or formerly Assemblies of God.

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