St Alkmund's is a vicarage not in charge; the old church was taken down, and a new one commenced in the beginning of 1844 on an enlarged scale. The late church is supposed to have been originally founded early in the ninth century. The chapelries of Little Eaton and Darley are in St Alkmund parish, though outside the limits of the borough; and a church district named St Paul's was also endowed in St Alkmund's Parish in 1844 by the Ecclesiastical Commissioners. The living of St. Peter's is a discharged vicarage, with that of Normanton (chapelry) annexed. The parochial church is ancient, but of uncertain date. Trinity Church, in the parish, erected in 1836. The parish also includes the chapel of Boulton. The living of St. Werburgh's is a discharged vicarage. The original church of St. Werburgh is supposed to have been built prior to the Conquest. Being situated near Mark-Eaton brook, its foundation was injured by occasional floods; so that in 1601 the tower fell, and within a century afterwards, the church having become ruinous, the present edifice was erected. A chapel dedicated to St. John has been erected (by 1848). The chapel of Alvaston is in St. Michael's parish. The new edifice of Christchurch, Derby, was consecrated by the Bishop of Lichfield in January 1844. There are places of worship for General and Particular Baptists, the Society of Friends, Independents, Wesleyans (New and Old Connexion), Swedenborgians, and Unitarians; and a Roman Catholic chapel, erected in 1839. The Roman Catholics have also built a handsome structure as a residence for the Sisters of Mercy, and for a chapel and schools. A general cemetery was opened in 1843.
