Cemeteries

We believe the Church does 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 by 1965, and we understand it is still open.

The first known meeting place for the Church of Latter-day Saints in Cheltenham is the former Bethel Baptist Chapel, now Christadelphian Hall, in Knapp Road.

It is not known when they removed to Thirlestaine Road, but the following notice in The London Gazette of 9th March 1965 (p.2421) records the registration of the premises for marriages:

A Building certified for worship named LATTER-DAY SAINT CHAPEL, Thirlestaine Road, Cheltenham in the registration district of Cheltenham in the county of Gloucester was on 3rd March 1965 registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949 as amended by section 1(1) of the Marriage Acts Amendment Act, 1958. Dated 5th March 1965.

Denomination

Now or formerly Latter-day Saints.

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