We believe the Chapel does 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 1872, and we understand it is still open.

Our photographer tells me this church has a foundation stone marked 1872; and I can verify it is shown on the earliest Old Maps available, surveyed in 1877. By Maps of 1916, it is labelled as "U.M. Church" (United Methodist).

The following notice in The London Gazette of 12th March 1909 (p.1973) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named EBENEZER CHAPEL, situated at Barrow Hill, in the civil parish of Staveley, in the county of Derby, in Chesterfield registration district, was, on the 9th March, 1909, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6th and 7th Wm. IV, c.85. Dated 10th March 1909.


Now or formerly United 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.


This Chapel is located at OS grid reference SK4178575288. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:
