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 1878, but we understand it was closed in 1955.

This Chapel is shown on series of Old Maps covering the period 1878-1938. It was one of 3 within a very short distance of one another, only one of which survives in the present day - what is now New Tupton Evangelical Church, formerly Methodist New Connexion, and later United Methodist.

It was set in what was Chapel Street, now Ivanhoe Close, and its site is occupied by new housing in the present day. The denomination isn't stated, but by comparison with Chapels listed by Kelly's directory of 1891, which mentions "Primitive Methodist, Free Methodist and Methodist New Connexion chapels at New Tupton", and Kelly's Directory of 1895, which records "Primitive Methodist and Methodist New Connexion Chapels only, and the fact that the Free Methodist is no longer shown on Maps after that of 1878-1885, it must have been Primitive Methodist.

As it is not shown on Maps after 1938, it may have been the "Mount Zion Methodist Chapel" at New Tupton, which was recorded in The London Gazette of 15th July 1955 (p.4103) as one of the buildings which "have wholly ceased to be used as places of worship by the congregations on whose behalf they were certified"... Its original certification (for marriages) was dated 18th February 1893 - typically this would be at least a year after it was registered for worship.

The other two chapels are recorded elsewhere in this database.


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.

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Tupton, North Wingfield, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
