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 1894, but we understand it was closed before 1932.

This former Mission Room was L-shaped, and situated at the end of the former Sleetmoor Road, which by Maps of 1937, was renamed as Gladstone Road, though by then, the Room was no longer marked. It ran from Park Road in a north-to-south direction, parallel to, and to the west of Nuttall Street, and terminated in a Yard belonging to the Queen's Head Inn, which was reached from Derby Road. In the present day it is part unmade road, and part footpath, and the sites of the former Inn, and of the Mission Room are now occupied by modern housing.

Kelly's Directory of 1912 records a Mission Room (presumably of St Martin's parish church) on Mansfield Road, and "another at the south end of the town, erected in 1894, seating 100 persons". This is assumed to be the latter. Evidently it was disused by 1932, as it is not mentioned by Kelly's Directory of that year.


Now or formerly Mission Room.

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