We believe the Chapel 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 1894, but we understand it was closed in 1965.

The position indicated for this chapel is as marked on Old Maps from 1900. It is mentioned in Kelly's Directory of 1895 as erected in 1894, and it is recorded on the Ashbourne Town webpage of "Churches and Places of Worship" as demolished.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 21st April 1896 (p.2398) recorded its registration for marriages:

NOTICE is hereby given that a separate building named Beulah Church situated at Station-street Ashbourne in the parish of Ashbourne in the county of Derbyshire in the registration district of Ashbourne being a building certified according to law as a place of meeting for religious worship, was on the 10th day of April 1896, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th Wm. 4, cap. 80. Dated 15th April 1896.

Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide includes records of marriages 1960-1965, and a note that it was closed in 1965. A corresponding notice of cancellation of its registration (as "BEULAH CHURCH, Station Street, Ashbourne") appeared in the Gazette of 9th November 1965 (p.10461)

Now or formerly Primitive 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.

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 Ashbourne, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.
