This Church has (or had) 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 1816, and we understand it is still open.

Gladwyn Turbutt's A History of Derbyshire (1996, p.1294) tells us this "Classical Revival Church" was designed by Joseph Ireland, and built for the Eyres of Hassop in 1818. Services had been previously held in a private chapel at Hassop Hall.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 13th October 1837 (p.2623) recorded its registration for marriages:

NOTICE is hereby given, that a separate building, named Hassop Roman Catholic Chapel, situated at Hassop, in the parish of Bakewell, in the county of Derby, in the district of Bakewell, being a building certified according to law as a place of religious worship, was, on the 9th day of October 1837, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th William 4, chap. 85. Dated 11th October 1837.

The return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/449/1/6/10) for "All Saints Chapel", Hassop describes a separate building, erected in 1822, used exclusively as a place of worship. It had seating for 200, all of which were free, and standing room for 30; and the estimated congregation on March 30th was 140 in the morning, and "from 30 to 60" in the afternoon. That there was no evening service, and no Sunday School was stated specifically. The return was completed by "The Revd. John Jones", Roman Catholic Priest, of "Hassop, Bakewell, Derbyshire".

Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide includes a register of baptisms for the period 1816-1843.


Now or formerly Roman Catholic.

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