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 before 1851, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

The return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/343/1/14/23) describes a place of worship in the parish of Snowshill and district of Winchcombe. There was no name given for it, and it was part of another building, not used exclusively as a place of worship. There were, however, sittings for 160, all of which were free, in a room 20ft by 13. The estimated congregation on March 30th was 37 attending an evening service. The return was completed by George Cannon Smith, Lay Preacher, of Blockley, Nr. Moreton in Marsh, Gloucestershire.

As it was a room in another building it is not surprising its location is not shown on Old Maps. So in the absence of further information, I am indicating a location where the Old Schoolhouse was erected, in 1871, as it may have been built on the site of an existing communal building.

Of course, it could have been somewhere else entirely, and if I discover that to be so, I will be happy to amend these notes.

Denomination

Now or formerly 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.
