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 1881, but we understand it was closed in 1936, and the premises are now in secular use.

The Victoria County History series: A History of the County of Gloucester, Volume 11: Bisley and Longtree Hundreds (1976), pp.55-56 (Miserden - Nonconformity) records that a Primitive Methodist Chapel was built in Miserden towards the end of the 19th century, which by 1970 had been converted into a house for the district nurse.

It was still mentioned in Kelly's Directory of 1939, but in fact according to the following notice in The London Gazette of 25th September 1936 (p.6153) it was already closed by then:

NOTICE is hereby given that the Place of Meeting for religious worship described as METHODIST CHAPEL, situated at Miserden, in the civil parish of Miserden, in the registration district of Stroud, in the county of Gloucester, which was duly certified for worship on the 2nd day of July, 1881, has wholly ceased to be used as a Place of Meeting for religious worship by the congregation on whose behalf it was so certified, and that the Registrar-General has caused the record of the certification thereof to be cancelled pursuant to the Act 18 & 19 Vict., c.81, from the 23rd day of September, 1936. Dated 23rd September 1936.

In the present day it retains the name "Chapel Cottage".

Denomination

Now or formerly Primitive 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.
