Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded before 1884, but we understand it was closed after 1923.

Possibly this was the Burial Ground associated with Kings Stanley's early Baptist Chapel, described by the Victoria County History series: A History of the County of Gloucester, Volume 10: Westbury and Whitstone Hundreds (1972), p.256 (Kings Stanley - Nonconformity) as at "the place known in 1839 as Old Meeting, on Coombe Lane south of Middle Yard" - and the forerunner to the present day Kings Stanley Baptist Church, in Broad Street. The latter was built in 1824.

It is shown as a Burial Ground on OS Maps between 1884 and 1923.
