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 1869, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when.

Kelly's Directories of 1891 onwards record Wesleyan, and Primitive Methodist Chapels in Mosborough; but Bulmer's Directory of 1895 goes a step further, in recording when they were built, so we know the Primitive Methodist Chapel dates from 1869.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 29th October 1889 (p.5739) recorded its registration for marriages:

NOTICE is hereby given, that a separate building, named the Primitive Methodist Chapel, situate at Mosborough, in the parish of Eckington, in the county of Derby, in the district of Chesterfield, being a building certified according to law as a place of religious worship, was, on the 27th day of September, 1889, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th. Wm. 4, cap. 85. Dated 1st October 1889.

Although a Wesleyan Chapel had been in existence in Mosborough since 1839, a new building was erected in 1889 that same year. And this building remains open today for Methodist worship, whilst the former Primitive Methodist has closed - an occasion recorded in the Gazette of 3rd February 1976 (p.1708) when the above-mentioned registration for marriages was cancelled.

When they were both still open, as was the case at the time Maps of 1956 were prepared, they were known respectively as "Mosborough Queen Street Methodist Church", and "Mosborough Trinity Methodist Church". The latter was the larger building, with an associated Sunday School, possibly leading to its choice as today's "Mosborough Methodist Church". The Queen Street premises are however still in use as a place of worship, and are now the home of the Salvation Army.


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.

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 Mosborough, Eckington, 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.
