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 1893, but we understand it was closed in 1983, and the premises are now in secular use.

The Victoria County History website work-in-progress for Gloucestershire Volume 13 records that this Chapel was opened in 1893, and belonged to the Gloucester Methodist circuit. Its position has been noted from Old Maps as a Wesleyan Chapel, and by 1970 was labelled as a Methodist Church.

It is a small rectangular building of red brick, with 2 courses of lighter brick at its gable end, facing the road. There are 3 pointed-arched windows, a tall central one and shorter ones on either side, separated by a brick's width. There is another small opening above the upper course of lighter brickwork, and a small cross at the apex.

It was closed in 1983, when it had only 6 members, and has since been converted for residential occupation.

Denomination

Now or formerly Wesleyan 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.
