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 1848, but we understand it was closed after 1878.

It is not known where exactly the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints held their meetings in mid-nineteenth century Heanor. Perhaps it was the premises at 45 Derby Road, later occupied by the Salvation Army, or the present day Salcare shop at 59 Ray Street, on the basis that an association of a building as a place of worship is likely to have continued.

Evidence of its existence rests on records of members of the church for the period 1848-1878, listed in the Family History Library Catalogue, and the return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/438/2/1/6), which described a separate building in Heanor, used exclusively as a place of worship. It had free seating for 70, and the estimated congregation on 30th March was 15 in the morning, 50 at afternoon service, and 70 in the evening. The return was completed by Samuel Gamble, the Secretary, who gave his address as "Heanr Nr. Belper, Derbyshire". There was no record provided of when it was built.


Now or formerly Latter-day Saints.

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