Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel 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 1810, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when, and the premises are now in secular use.

Siston Ebenezer Chapel is Grade II Listed - see the British Listed Buildings website for details. It stands back from the main A420 road, behind a wide common area. There is a three bay front with central porch and 2 long round-arched windows on either side, which is extended on the left to two stories with a separate doorway. Above the porch is a tablet, which is not readable from the road, but according to the British Listed Building site reads "1810, Methodist Chapel, Ebeneezer Sam VII 12". Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Gloucestershire (1986) concur with a date of 1810, and record it as Free Methodist.

Denomination

Now or formerly Free 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.

Resources

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Siston, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

Please also remember that the former Ebenezer Chapel is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
