We believe the Church does 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 1881, and we understand it is still open.

North Cerney Methodist Church is set on the side of the hill, the main entrance on street level, and a basement set below it, into the side of the hill. It has a central round-arched doorway, with a square plaque above it indicating it was founded as a Primitive Methodist Chapel, with a date which appears to be 1881. Kelly's Directory of 1923 says it was built in 1891, but a "Methodist Chapel (Primitive)" is marked on OS 1883-1885 1:2,500, so obviously it was in place before then.

There are 2 tall round-arched windows on either side of the entrance, each of 3 lights, above which is a semi-circle of 4 radial lights, giving the building an attractive, and welcoming appearance.

The Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/340/1/12/16) records that North Cerney had a place of worship for Baptists, but its location is now unknown, as it was said to be part of another building.


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.
