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 after 1906, but we understand it was closed by 1967.

The first known appearance of a place of worship at this location in Queen Street is on Maps of 1923, where it is labelled as a "Mission Room". By Maps of 1956, however it is shown as "Glynn Vivian Miners Mission".

Appositely, it was registered for marriages that year, as the following notice in The London Gazette of 7th August 1956 (p.4555) indicates:

A Building certified for worship named GLYNN VIVIAN MINERS' MISSION, Queen Street, Mosborough Eckington, in the registration district of Chesterfield, in the county of Derby, was on the 1st August, 1956, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949. [no other date]

A similar notice, cancelling the registration was published in the Gazette of 2nd November 1967 (p.11925); however by that time, evidently, Mosborough had been transferred to the City of Sheffield, as it was described as "GLYNN VIVIAN MINERS' MISSION, Queen Street, Mosborough, Eckington, in the registration district of Sheffield".

In the present day, the site is still in use as a place of worship, by Mosborough Elim Church. A history on their website records that their first building (now demolished) had been used by the Glynn Vivian Miners Mission from the early 1900s. Their account also includes a link to the website of the International Miners' Mission, founded by Richard Glynn Vivian in 1906... "The purpose of the International Miners' Mission (IMM) is to evangelise and minister to miners, their families and others in mining areas, under God's leading, in co-operation with other ministries". The first mission was opened in Glynn Vivian's home town of Swansea.


Now or formerly Christians.

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.
