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 1927, and we understand it is still open.

St Bartholomew's ecclesiastical parish was formed in November 1927 from Normanton, Osmaston, and St James the Great. The church is a brick building, which according to Kelly's Directory of 1932, erected in 1927 "mainly by means of a bequest of £1,000 by the late Colonel Newdigate".

Derbyshire Record Office's catalogue of Church of England Registers says Osmaston by Derby "parish was centred originally on St James's church, and after 1905 on St Osmund. Part of the parish was transferred to a new parish of St Bartholomew in 1927. United with parish of St Andrew, Derby, 1969, and St James and St Osmund churches both now demolished". This appears to refer to churches of St Andrew and St James (the Less), since St Osmund is still standing, and apparently still open for worship.


Now or formerly Church of England.

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