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 1921, but we understand it was closed before 1995.

Kelly's Directory of 1932 mentions that Barrow Hill had, at that time, a temporary Church Hall, erected in 1921, "which is to be rebuilt of brick". Its location in Station Road may be seen on Old Maps of 1938, situated between St Andrew's Church, and one of Barrow Hill's School buildings. Both Church, and School are still standing in the present day, but the Hall has been demolished, and its site is now occupied by modern housing in a "new" road, Avonside Close, which appears to have been built after the publication of my Derbyshire Street Atlas of 1995.

Kelly's Directory also records "Reading and news rooms, with a library", which were built in 1863 "for the workmen employed at the extensive coal and iron works belonging to the Staveley Coal and Iron Company Limited, where upwards of 7,000 persons are engaged". Also mentioned is that the ironwork for the London Exhibition of 1862 was cast at this place.

The "Reading and news room" is still standing in the present day, now known as "Barrow Hill Memorial Club". It is a long, two storey building of local stone, with battlements, and a date plaque "A.D. 1863" set into the wall above the entrance. One of the walls facing the road also has a War Memorial.


Now or formerly Church of England.

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