We believe the Church does 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 1914, and we understand it is still open.

Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide refers to this place of worship as "Clowes Methodist Church". They hold records of baptisms for the period 1939-1951.

Their list also includes a Clowes Methodist Church in Tamworth Road, Sawley, with a note to "see also Long Eaton". William Clowes, with Hugh Bourne were the co-founders of the Primitive Methodist movement in the early 19th century.

The Church is built of red brick, with the side facing the road of three bays, each bay containing a pair of pointed arched windows. There is a modern extension to its left, the two being joined by a modern vestibule, so the group of 3 windows, on that (east) side of the Church has remained intact.

Note: Old Maps do not show it in its present location in Butt Street until 1914. In 1885, Sandiacre's Primitive Methodist Chapel is shown to have been in Mill Lane, opposite what was then the Post Office, when Butt Street did not exist.

It would be nice to know when it was built, but at present I cannot say better than "before 1914". See elsewhere in this database for its predecessor.


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.
