We believe the Church does 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 by 1977, and we understand it is still open.

The Salvation Army in Mosborough occupy a building erected originally in 1869 as a Primitive Methodist Chapel. It was closed for Methodist worship by early 1976, and adopted by the Salvation Army by the following year, as the following notice in The London Gazette of 24th May 1977 (p.6483) indicates:

A building certified for worship named SALVATION ARMY HALL, Queen Street, Mosborough, in the registration district of Sheffield in the Metropolitan District of Sheffield, was on 6th May 1977, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949, as amended by section 1(1) of the Marriage Acts Amendment Act 1958. Dated 17th May 1977.

Intriguingly, they already had a Citadel in High Street at that time, which had been registered for marriages in 1974, but as there is no indication in the above notice that the Queen Street premises replaced it, apparently that too remained open.

The Queen Street building is of red brick, and has a three bay front with a central porch, above which is a circular window with clear glazing. There are two tall windows on either side of the porch, each of which is surrounded by an inset column of stone - 4 columns in all, connected at the top by 3 arches, the central of which spans the circular window above the porch. The sides are of 4, or possibly 5 bays, and there is an extension to the building at the rear.


Now or formerly Salvation Army.

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


This Church is located at OS grid reference SK4238781122. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:


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.
