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 1861, but we understand it was closed in 2012.

This building occupies the site of London Road Wesleyan Chapel. It was built in 1861, but as a measure of its importance it was restructured in 1927 to become Derby Methodist Central Hall. However a fire in 1991 destroyed much of the interior, and the structure we see today is a rebuilding, described as "a beautiful example of modern worship design within the framework of an older structure".

At the time of preparing this account originally (2011) I learned that besides its Methodist congregation, the Chinese Church, and Industrial Mission in Derbyshire also met here. My information at the time was based on 2 sources, now (2018) available only via the "Wayback Machine" - the former Derbyshire Churches and Chapels, and the former Derby Church Net websites.

Since then, however, I understand that the "Queen's Hall Methodist Mission" closed in 2012. This information was (in December 2018) available on The Methodist Churches in Derby website, which also explains that the Chinese Church now worship in Ashbourne Road Methodist/United Reformed Church.


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.


This Church was located at OS grid reference SK3587935519. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:


I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Derby, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
