Cemeteries

We believe the Church 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 1921, but we understand it was closed after 1992.

The position of this Gospel Hall may be seen on Old Maps, for instance OS 1991 1:2,500. It was probably the meeting place for the group of Brethren listed in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) at an address in Station Street. The Victoria County History series: A History of the County of Gloucester, Volume 5: Bledisloe Hundred, St Briavels Hundred, The Forest of Dean (1996), pp.396-404 (Forest of Dean - Nonconformity), also mentions a group of Brethren were meeting in a mission hall in Station Street from 1921, and it was still in use by them in 1992.

The site is presently in use by the Forest of Dean Community Church, for which there is a separate entry in this database. Their building looks new, though it may an extension of, or a rebuilding of the original hall.

Denomination

Now or formerly Brethren.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
