We believe the Church 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 1904, but we understand it was closed in 1975.

Jayne Smith's webpage of Churches of Staveley has a photograph of Trinity Methodist Church, and the information that it was dedicated in 1904. It superseded a Chapel built in 1849, which in turn replaced an earlier Wesleyan Chapel, built in 1827, of which there are further details elsewhere in this database

Kelly's Directory of 1912 describes the building as of red brick with Bath stone dressings, affording seating for 500, and built at a cost of £5,500. Opening and closing dates are as per Derbyshire Record Office's Non Conformist Register Guide, which lists records of baptisms 1886-1973, and marriages 1905-1908.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 15th July 1904 (p.4575) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named TRINITY CHURCH, situated at Chesterfield-road, in the civil parish of Staveley, in the county of Derby, in Chesterfield registration district, was, on the eighth July, 1904, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6th and 7th Wm. IV, c.85, being substituted for the building named Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, situated at New-street, Staveley, now disused. Dated 11th July 1904.

This is "Chesterfield Road", the east-to-west continuation of Market Street, before it reaches the roundabout where it veers south. The site is now occupied by blocks of flats.


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.
