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 1820, but we understand it was closed in 1964.

I am indebted to Old Maps, and Phil Draper's ChurchCrawler website for the location of, and information about this Chapel. "It was founded in 1820 and grew until in 1840 a pretty little chapel was erected in Maudlin Street. It would have looked at home in Wales and was set back from the road". Phil's webpage provides a photograph showing a west front (facing the street) with a plain central doorway above which were 3 large round-arched windows, with a pediment in which was set a plaque, presumably indicating its date and dedication. Old Maps show it was set quite far back from the road, with - seemingly - some steps up to it on the left side.

The Chapel was closed in 1964, but afterwards was used by Broadmead Baptist Church whilst their new Church was built; however it was subsequently demolished and its area now occupied by the Eye and Dental Hospitals.

Denomination

Now or formerly Welsh Baptist.

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