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 before 1902, but we understand it was closed after 1923.

Kelly's Directory of 1923 records that "the reorganised Church of Latter Day Saints have a meeting place" in Lydney, and the location of a "Latter Day Saints Church is shown on OS 1902-1903 1:2,500. Twenty years later, OS 1921 to the same scale shows a Congregational Church in the same position. The latter is what was known as the "Tin Chapel", and was replaced in 1928 with what was to become the present day brick-built Lydney United Reformed Church, for which see the separate entry in this database.

As the LDS Church and the Congregational Chapel are not seen on Old Maps at the same time, it would appear that either they shared the premises, or else the Congregational Church took over the Tin Chapel from LDS. The latter seems the more probable to me.

Denomination

Now or formerly Latter-day Saints.

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