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 about 2001, and we understand it is still open.

Bolsover's Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses stands on the north-east corner of the junction of the High Street with Cotton Street, on a plot which had been occupied since the 1960s by a Pentecostal Church.

The circumstances leading to its erection may be traced on the Bolsover District Council website, in a planning application of 24th April 2001 [01/00220/FUL] for "demolition of existing building and erection of a single storey place of worship", which in an associated entry is described as "Jehovahs Witness High Street Bolsover Chesterfield S44 6HE". The application records that it is in the ward of Bolsover North West, and in the parish of Old Bolsover.

According to notices published in The London Gazette of 30th May 1950 (p.2700) and 21st April 1959 (p.2642) recording their closure, Bolsover had had 2 previous Kingdom Halls - at 42, Market Place, registered in 1942; and 27 'Cottam' (presumably intended for 'Cotton') Street, registered in 1957. The closure of a third Kingdom Hall, at "81A Shuttlewood Road, Bolsover", was recorded in the Gazette of 24th July 2007 (p.10644) - seemingly several years after the new building was opened.


Now or formerly Jehovah's Witness.

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