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 1978, and we understand it is still open.

Mayfield Road Methodist Church in Chaddesden is believed to have superseded the former Methodist Church in Chesapeake Road. I have been unable to establish exactly when the congregation transferred to the new premises, but the following notice in The London Gazette of 22nd June 1978 (p.7567) indicates when the old building was no longer in use:

The Registrar General, being satisfied that METHODIST CHURCH, Chesapeake Road, Chaddesden, in the registration district of Derby, in the non-metropolitan county of Derbyshire, is no longer used as place of worship by the congregation on whose behalf it was on 20th January 1959, registered for marriages in accordance with the Marriage Acts 1949 to 1970, has cancelled the registration. Dated 15th June 1978.

There is an account of Chaddesden Old Methodist Church elsewhere in this database; or conversely, for recent information, you may like to visit The Methodist Churches in Derby (Derby Methodist Circuit) website.


Now or formerly 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 is located at OS grid reference SK3735037223. 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 Chaddesden, 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.
