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 1833, and we understand it is still open.

There is a comprehensive history of Langley Mill Baptist Church on the Heanor & District Local History Society website, tracing its origins to "cottage" meetings in Marlpool, in 1807, led by the Rev. William Pickering, from Ilkeston. Meetings were discontinued when Pickering left Ilkeston, but in 1833, nine people from the Heanor area began worshipping in a house in Heanor Lane (now Station Road). Their first permanent building was erected in 1839, on land purchased from a Mr John Bakewell, the owner of a coal pit near to the chapel, and later the first manager of Langley Mill gasworks.

It may be of interest that it was, and probably still is, registered for marriages, as the following notice in The London Gazette of 27th February 1900 (p.1366) indicates:

NOTICE is hereby given, that a separate building, named Baptist Chapel, situated at Station-road, Langley Mill, in the civil parish of Heanor in the county of Derby in the registration district of Basford, being a building certified according to law as a place of meeting for religious worship, was, on the 22nd day of February, 1900, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th Wm. 4, c.85. Dated 22nd February 1900.


Now or formerly General Baptist.

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