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 in 1827, but we understand it was closed after 1904.

The return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/449/2/6/12) describes a separate building, named as "Wesleyan Methodist", erected in "Twodales" in 1827, and used exclusively as a place of worship. It had free seating for 70, and 66 "other" sittings; and the estimated congregation on March 30th was "None" in the morning, 29 in the afternoon, and 22 in the evening. The average, said to be over the Summer months, was 45 in the afternoon, 40 in the evening, and 60 Sunday Scholars attending morning and afternoon classes. The return was completed by John Young, its Steward ["Superintendent" crossed out], who gave his address as "Darley, Nr. Matlock".

The building was replaced in 1904 by a new building in Dale Road - today's "Dale Road Methodist Church".

Now or formerly Wesleyan 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.
