Cemeteries

We believe the Church 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 1853, but we understand it was closed by 1876, and the premises are now in secular use.

The Victoria County History series: A History of the County of Gloucester, Volume 4: The City of Gloucester (1988), pp.438-448 (Matson) describes how Nonconformity didn't really "take off" in Matson until the 1950s, when the new housing estates were being built. The exceptions are notable for their scarcity, and limited to only two instances. The first was in 1676, when just one parishioner was recorded as a nonconformist, and the second in 1853, when a room in a house in Trafalgar Place, on the Painswick road was registered by Wesleyan Methodists. This meeting had however lapsed before 1876, the Methodists seemingly never to return.

Trafalgar Place is a row of 6 cottages built in the early 19th century, on the west side of Painswick Road, just south of its junction with Matson Lane. The area was originally part of Upton St Leonards parish, but by the later 19th century, it had become "the most populous in the district" and consequently, it was transferred (with Saintbridge) to Matson.

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.
