We believe the Church 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 1841, and we understand it is still open.

This meeting place has had a chequered history. Full details of this are on Storrs Road Chesterfield Community Gateway website. There has been a Methodist or Wesleyan Church on the site since the early 19th Century. The first chapel was a corrugated metal building (a 'tin tabernacle'), opened in 1841. It was however closed for a while, but reopened later in the century by Thomas IRVING, a local agricultural merchant, who gave the building to a group of Bible Christians, but it was once again closed "due, it is said, to the influence of false teaching".

It reopened in 1892, when it was taken over by a group from the Old Hall Road Wesleyan Methodist Church; however the present building dates from 19th July 1899, when its foundation stone was laid, to open on 21st February in the following year.

The community building which is attached dates from 1971, opening on 24 March 1973, originally in cooperation with the Local Authority and other local organisations, but after a 28-year lease expired (2001), it reverted to Storrs Road Methodist Church.

The above information was compiled in 2010.


Now or formerly Wesleyan 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.
