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 1831, but we understand it was closed in 1901.

To all appearances from Old Maps, this was Hasland's first Methodist Chapel. The return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/448/2/9/32) for "Hasland Chapel", with a Primitive Methodist congregation, is for a separate building, erected in 1842, used exclusively as a place of worship. There was free seating for 77, and 73 "other" sittings, and the estimated congregation on March 30th was 100 to afternoon service, and 93 in the evening (no Sunday School). The return was completed by "Wiliam Windle", its Steward, of "Hasland, Nr. Chesterfield". It is shown on early Maps as just "Chapel", but by 1918, by which time today's Hasland Methodist Church had been built, it is shown as a Sunday School.

According to Margaret Hartshorn's website for Hasland its congregation was founded in 1831 in a cottage in Chapel Lane, and it was replaced in 1901 with the present Methodist Church in Hampton Street. It is curious, therefore, to find that on Maps of 1962 the premises in Chapel Street, are shown once again as a Methodist Church, so perhaps even as a Sunday School, it remained consecrated. At that time, the former Wesleyan Methodist Church in the road named "The Green" was also still open as well.

In the present day, it has been demolished, and the area it occupied has been turned into a Car Park for the residents of newly built houses in Chapel Street.


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.
