Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded in 1858, and we understand it is still open.

Quoting from A Day in The Peak, by Andreas Edward Cokayne (1889):

The CEMETERY is situated a few hundred yards south of the church. It was designed by Mr. Barry, of London. Two chapels - one for use of members of the Church of England, the other for Nonconformists - with an Entrance Lodge for the residence of the superintendent, stand within it. The ground is tastefully laid out and adorned with shrubs and flowers. The northern portion, appropriated to the Church of England, was consecrated by the Bishop of Lichfield on the 17th November, 1858. The extent of the whole is about three acres and a half.

According to Bakewell - the Ancient Capital of the Peak (Halsgrove, 2005, p.60), All Saints Churchyard was closed to burials the same year. Nevertheless Derbyshire Record Office's catalogue of Church of England Registers does list records of burials at All Saints for the period 1614-1918, 1929 and 1975. Perhaps the closure referred to by the Halsgrove book applied to new graves only, and burials in existing graves continued. The DRO do not, apparently hold the Cemetery's burial records, so presumably they are still held locally.


Now or formerly a Cemetery.

In most cases this will be a record of its original consecration.
