We believe the Chapel 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 1912, but we understand it was closed in 1962.

Kelly's Directories of 1912 and 1932 both record that Fairfield had a Primitive Methodist mission chapel. Neither of them say when it was built, or where it was, but a "History of Methodism in Fairfield from 1844 to 1994" available from today's Fairfield Methodist Church website, records that "in 1962 the Queens Road society who had previously worshipped as Primitive Methodists joined with the Fairfield Road society and the two became known as Fairfield Methodist Church". Hence it became possible to locate it on Old Maps of 1922, on the north side of the street, slightly to the west of its junction with Bench Road. It was a "Tin Tabernacle, affectionately known as the "Tin Chapel".

The next available detailed Map, of 1967, shows the building was then still in existence, but no longer labelled as a chapel. It is, however possible that it was adopted by another denomination between 1972 and 1980, as a notice was published in The London Gazette of 3rd October 1980 (p.13858) to the effect that "Christ Gospel Church, Queen's Road, Fairfield, Buxton" had been recorded for worship in accordance with the Places of Worship Act 1855 on 14h April 1972, but as of 30th September 1980, it was no longer used.

The building has since been demolished, and an attractive modern residence now occupies its site.


Now or formerly Primitive Methodist.

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