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 1852, but we understand it was closed in 2000.

Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide includes records of baptisms for Mastin Moor (formerly Marsden Moor) Methodist Chapel covering the period 1939-2000, however in the present day, the building appears to have been demolished, and the site occupied by new housing.

According to Jayne Smith's Churches of Staveley webpage, it was founded in 1851. Old Maps of 1877 label it as "Jubilee Chapel (Primitive Methodist)"; in 1961 it is called "Ebenezer Methodist Church", and in other years as "Primitive Methodist" with no name. On the opposite side of what is now Worksop Road, and a short distance up Hague Lane was the "Jovial Collier" public house. Also marked is a "Woodbine Cottage", Marstin Moor Reservoir (owned by Chesterfield Union Water Works) and a large number of Wells.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 22nd November 1889 (p.6454) recorded its registration for marriages:

NOTICE is hereby given, that a separate building, named the Ebenezer Primitive Methodist Chapel, situate at Mastin Moor, in the parish of Staveley, in the county of Derby, in the district of Chesterfield, being a building certified according to law as a place of religious worship, was, on the 28th day of October, 1889, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th Wm. 4, cap. 85. Dated 29th October 1889.

There is evidence of change in premises in 1973, as on 12th February that year, "METHODIST CHURCH, Mastin Moor, Staveley" was registered, and "EBENEZER CHAPEL, Mastin Moor, Staveley" de-registered. The final notice to apply was published in the Gazette of 1st July 2001 (p.0), where "Methodist Church, Mastin Moor, Staveley" was included in a list of buildings which are "no longer used by the congregations on whose behalf they were registered".


Now or formerly Primitive 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.
