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 in 1723, but we understand it was closed in 1825.

According to the Cheltenham Archaeological Assessment for the Sites and Monuments Record, a chapel was built about 1723 on the south side of Albion Street, opposite the Pate's Almshouses building (built 1811). It is understood to have been occupied by Methodists from 1764 until sometime between 1785 and 1810, after which time its congregation may have moved to the new Ebenezer Chapel, which opened in 1813 in King Street. By 1825 the Albion Street chapel had fallen into disrepair, and was demolished, after which a Mechanics' Institute was built on the site.

A record in c.1850 said the chapel would have seated between 150 and 200 people.

Denomination

Now or formerly 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.
