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 1851, but we understand it was closed before 1923.

A place of worship with the name of "Baptist Meeting Room" was recorded on the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/375/3/10/19) in Walton on Trent, with an average congregation of 30 to afternoon services. The return was completed by James Pulsford, its Minister, of "New St, Burton-on-Trent".

This does appear to have been - literally - a room. Old Maps of 1883-1901 label a Chapel building on the north side of Main Street, but there is no mention of either a Baptist, or Methodist Chapel in Kelly's Directory of 1895. So possibly the congregation who met in 1851 may later have built their own chapel, and somehow it avoided being listed in Directories. By 1923, the same building is labelled as "Institute", so it had been deconsecrated by then. There is no sign of it in the present day (2013), and a new house now occupies the site.


Now or formerly 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.
