Dyers Hill West Riding

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Dyers Hill like this:

DYER'S-HILL, a chapelry in Sheffield parish, W. R. Yorkshire; near Sheffield town and r. station. It was constituted in 1846; and its post town is Sheffield. Pop., 7, 717. Houses, 1, 653. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of York. Value, £300. Patron, alternately the Crown and the Bishop.

The Imperial Gazetteer says that Dyers Hill was near the station. A posting on RootsWeb is more specific: "St Lukes Dyers Hill, was in Sheffield Park, just at the back of the Midland Station" (http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/ENG-SHEFFIELD/2001-07/0994470297, accessed 15th Sept 2011). The location used here is the large church just east of the Midland station. Additional information about this locality is available for Sheffield
