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 1852, and we understand it is still open.

Ironville is a "model village" - it was built for the Butterley Iron Company between 1834 and 1850. "There was well-spaced factory housing, long rows of plain brick cottages, but the last unaltered housing in the axial King William Street, built in 1834, was demolished in 1977" [Source: The Buildings of Derbyshire, Pevsner/Williamson (1978)]

It was constituted an ecclesiastical parish in 1850, encompassing parts of the civil parishes of Alfreton, Pentrich, Heanor and Codnor, in Derbyshire, and Selston, in Nottinghamshire. It also incorporates Codnor Park, a separate township, which was formerly extra-parochial. The parish register dates from 1850, the same year the parish was formed.
