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 1874, but we understand it was closed after 1995.

According to Kelly's Directory of 1895, Ironville had 2 Methodist Chapels, a Free Methodist, built 1874 (United Methodist by Kelly's Directory of 1912), and a Primitive Methodist, built 1883-4; however I have only been able to locate one building. Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide also records only one - "Ironville and Pyehill Providence (formerly United Methodist Free) Chapel, Selston. They hold records of baptisms for the period 1874-1940, and marriages 1899-1955.

It seems likely this is the building which survives to the present day in Pye Hill Road. At the time of Google StreetView drive past, it was up for sale. It is an elegant building, of red brick, with a central doorway, and 2 pointed-arch windows on each side of the doorway, outlined in lighter brickwork. It appears to have had a dedication plaque, but this is no longer readable.


Now or formerly Free/United 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.
