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 1858, and we understand it is still open.

According to Kelly's Directory (1932) St Charles Borromeo Roman Catholic Church was built in 1858 by Lord Howard of Glossop, and contains some impressive fittings. On the south side, the Convent of Sisters of Charity of St Paul was built in 1887 at the cost of John Dalton esq.

A consecration stone refers to a later dedication:

A.D.MCMXXVI. (1926)
on the 28th day of the Month of May,
I, Thomas DUNN, Bishop of Nottingham,
have consecrated this Church and Altars,
and enclosed therein the Relics
of the Holy Martyrs
St Crescentius and St Crescentia,
and have granted to all the Faithful of Christ,
on this day, one year of true Indulgence, and
on the anniversary of this Consecration, to
them that shall visit it, fifty days, in the
usual form of the Church.

A further account of its history is available on a webpage provided by the Glossop Heritage Trust of Glossopdale Churches and Chapels.


Now or formerly Roman Catholic.

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