We believe the Church 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 1873, but we understand it was closed in 1987.

This Wesleyan Chapel is first shown on Old Maps of 1881. It was a wide, rectangular building on the north side of Wesley Street, just past its junction with Station Street, and with a Sunday School at the rear. By 1962, it was labelled "Langley Mill Methodist Church".

It was registered for marriages, as the following notice in The London Gazette of 16th September 1873 (p.4224) indicates:

NOTICE is hereby given, that a separate building, named Langley Mill Wesleyan Chapel, situated at Langley Mill, in the parish of Heanor, in the county of Derby, in the district of Basford, being a building certified according to law as a place of religious worship, was, on the 2nd day of September, 1873, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th Wm. IV., cap. 85. Dated 6th September 1873.

A corresponding notice in the Gazette dated 29th June 1987, and published on 21st July 1987 (p.9297) reported its closure.

At the time of Kelly's Directory of 1932, Langley Mill had 3 Methodist Chapels, Primitive Methodist, United Methodist, and Wesleyan - only the Primitive Methodist building has survived to the present day, and it is currently (2013) in commercial use.


Now or formerly Wesleyan 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.
