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 before 1851, but we understand it was closed before 1918.

This Methodist Chapel (Wesleyan) can be seen on Old Maps of 1888, on the north-east corner of the junction of Hudd's Hill Road with Whiteway Road. This was before any of the houses had been built in Hudd's Hill Road. On Maps of 1918, Hudd's Hill Road was populated with terraced houses, so I assume the Chapel had been demolished by then.

The return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/330/3/1/7) may relate to the building. It describes a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel in "White Way, Parish of St George", a separate building used exclusively as a place of worship, with free seating for 150. The average congregation during the last 12 months had been 110 worshippers at both afternoon and evening services, and 220 Sunday Scholars at a morning class. However on March 30th, there were just 40 at afternoon service, and 19 in the evening, with 120 Sunday Scholars. The return was completed by William Rossiter, the Chapel's "Suppentendant" [sic]. He remarked that "the present number of hearers and scholars is below the average in consequence of a secession". The following return described a congregation of Wesleyan Reformers, also meeting in "Whiteway", which in comparison had a congregation of 50 in the morning, and 120 in the afternoon and evening.

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.
