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 before 1900, but we understand it was closed before 1970.

The only evidence of the former Holy Trinity Church today is a grassy plot at the end of an unmade road. Its name, and location may be seen on Old Maps, for example OS 1900 1:2.500. Kelly's Directory of 1932 records it as one of two Mission Churches of Christ Church in Ironville. It was situated between the railway and the Cromford Canal, and was approached by a tunnel under the railway line. A few metres north of the church were 2 rows of houses, called Church Row, and Derwent Row.

At the time of the 1891 Census, the hamlet of Stoneyford had 33 households. Some, like the Boat Inn, and Stoneyford Farm, have survived, but there is no trace whatsoever of either the Church, Church Row or Derwent Row in the present day. An OS Map of 1881 shows a Stoneyford Colliery, and many of the heads of household were coal miners, so possibly the accomodation was intended to be temporary whilst the coal was worked out.

Holy Trinity has no parish records listed in Derbyshire Record Office's catalogue of Church of England Registers, and its last appearance as a place of worship on OS Maps is 1970-1975 1:2.500. The former church at Golden Valley, St Matthias, has survived, and is now in private ownership.


Now or formerly Church of England.

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