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 in 1922, and we understand it is still open.

Pevsner, in his Buildings of England series (1986) records that St John's was designed in 1916 by Sir Charles Nicholson, and begun in 1922. It is built of brick, with stone dressings. A south west tower was planned, but never built, and the east end was completed "simply, with tile-hanging and a bell canopy". The interior was modernised by Montague Associates, and reopened in 1972. It is one of three churches mentioned by Pevsner in Long Eaton, besides the parish church of St Laurence. The others are Bethel Methodist, and Trinity Methodist.

Kelly's Directory of 1932 notes that it was consecrated by the Lord Bishop of Southwell in October 1923, describing it as "a building of brick, designed by Sir Charles Archibald Nicholson bart." and "at present there are 450 sittings, but when completed the church will seat 800". Derbyshire Record Office's catalogue of Church of England Registers records that a new parish of St John was created in 1923.


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.
