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 in 1928, but we understand it was closed in 1957.

There were two notices published in The London Gazette relating to successive places of worship in John Street. The first was published on 20th June 1924 (p.4829), and referred to the "HOLINESS MEETING ROOM, situated at John-street, Brimington". It was certified for worship on 2nd February 1924, and cancelled on 30th June the same year. The second was published on 4th June 1957 (p.3329) when "Full Gospel Hall, John Street, Brimington" was one of a list of buildings which "have wholly ceased to be used as places of worship by the congregations on whose behalf they were certified"... Its original certification was dated 31st August 1928.

This is intriguing to say the least. Kelly's Directory of 1932 mentions that Brimington had "a hall used by the Independent Holiness Movement". Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) lists "Holiness Hall", with an address of Heywood Street, and a congregation of "Christians not otherwise designated", so did the congregation of Holiness Hall move to Heywood Street? I have been unable to find either marked on detailed Old Maps, but my Derbyshire Street Atlas of 1995 shows a '+' between John Street and Heywood Street, to the east of Cross Street, so this presumably gives an approximate location. The area is now (2013) wholly in residential use, so there is no sign of it today.

Note: a further notice was published in the Gazette of 2nd June 1959 (p.3578) recording the registration for marriages of a Full Gospel Hall in Chapel Street. Possibly this was a change of premises for the same congregation. And possibly, the premises were thereafter in use by Brimington Spiritualist National Union Church, as this is recorded in the above Registrar General's List as in John Street.


Now or formerly Christians.

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

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Brimington, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
