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 1878, but we understand it was closed in 1995.

Derbyshire Record Office's catalogue of Church of England Registers describes St Chad's as a "Conventional district" formed 1878 out of the parishes of Christ Church, St James the Greater, and Normanton, which became a separate parish in 1882. The list includes records of baptisms 1878-1994, and marriages 1882-1994; and a note that the chapelry of St Augustine was included until 1908, when it became a separate parish.

Kelly's Directory of 1899 describes St Chad's, Mill Hill as a building of stone in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave, aisles, organ chamber and vestries, and having 1,000 sittings. The living, in 1899 was a vicarage, in the gift of trustees, and had been held since 1898 by the Rev. Josiah William Dawes M.A. of Durham University.

Sadly, the building was demolished in 1996, and its site is now a playing field for St Chad's School, which had been built next door to the Church in 1888. [Source: a Church Commissioners Report on Pastoral and Closed Churches, of 13 May 2010]


Now or formerly Church of England.

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