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 1849, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

The position of this Chapel is as near as possible to as marked on Old Maps, for example OS 1918 1:2,500. The area today appears to be occupied by car parks and a supermarket. It is mentioned in Kelly's Directory of 1932 as one of four other Non-conformist chapels in Shirebrook, all of which, apart from the Wesleyan Methodist, are stated likewise to have been erected in 1901. However Old Maps as early as 1887 1:10,560 show a Primitive Methodist Chapel on, or near to this spot, and one is also mentioned in Kelly's Directory of 1895, then the only place of worship in the parish apart from Holy Trinity parish church.

An earlier presence is confirmed by Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide, which says the Bourne Methodist Church, in Main Street, opened in 1849. It holds parish records up to 1959, but unfortunately this location isn't Main Street - I'm confused!


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.
