Cemeteries

This Church has (or had) 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 1848, and we understand it is still open.

Cerney Wick was recorded in Kelly's Directory of 1923 as a chapelry of South Cerney, and hamlet, 2 miles south east of South Cerney. Its chapel of ease is recorded as dedicated to Holy Trinity, consisting of chancel and nave, with a small bell turret at the west gable, containing one bell.

It is recorded on the 1851 Religious Census (HO 129/340/2/9/15) as the "New Chapel of Ease to the Mother Church South Cerney dedicated to the Holy Trinity", and was consecrated 28th August 1848. The estimated number to attend Divine Service on March 30, 1851 was 60 in the morning. There was a further comment that "Service is performed at this Chapel once every Sunday only - Morning & Evening alternatively". The return was by Joseph Wood, a Churchwarden.

It is not readily visible from the road, on a StreetView drive past, but there is a small signpost indicating the path to take to get there.

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

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