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 before 1876, but we understand it was closed in 1941.

A Chapel at this location has been noted on several Old Maps. On OS 1876-1877 1:2,500 it is labelled as "Ebenezer", but on later ones as just "Chap". It was on the east side of Station Road, midway between Chapel Street (still in existence) and Belmont Street. The area where it stood, and Belmont Street itself, have now been cleared, presumably at the time the A61 Chesterfield Bypass was built, in the 1980s.

Under "Sheepbridge", the Derbyshire Record Office list holdings of baptisms at Ebenezer Chapel at Whittington Moor for the period 1950-1969; however under "Whittington Moor" itself, they say its "Ebenezer Chapel" was closed in 1941 when its congregation joined that of Sheffield Road Methodist Church. I have been unable to resolve this inconsistency, as there does not appear to have been an Ebenezer Chapel at Sheepbridge itself.

Confusingly also, both Sheepbridge and Whittington Moor had "Sheffield Road Methodist" Chapels.


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.
