St. Alban's Claremont
The original was a very pretty white rough cast cement church designed by Alan Walker and built at a cost of 300 pounds. It was situated on a wide sweeping bend as you entered Claremont and overlooked the River Derwent and the Cadbury Chocolate Factory. When it was sold the stained glass memorial window which was dedicated to Captain Scott of the Antarctic was removed. There was never a burial ground attached to this Church.
The new St. Alban’s is situated at the northern end of Claremont and at the rear of the church there is a memorial wall for ashes.
At the present time the church under a new minister is undergoing a name change and is now known as “Edge Anglican Church”
