Cemeteries

This Chapel had 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 1842, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when.

The chapel is recorded in Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Gloucestershire (1986) as Congregational, and having a hipped slate roof, three-bay front with two tiers of round-arched windows, and a moulded cornice with the name "Independent Chapel" above a projecting centre bay and the date 1842 above the central Doric porch. It also mentions that galleries were added about 1854-5.

Old Maps, for instance OS 1881 1:2.500 show it had a burial ground to the rear. Google Satellite view indicates this has now been cleared, and in use as a car park.

The following information about the Chapel has been provided to accompany the photographs on the right. A list of people who have supplied the information is included in the Acknowledgements, below.

Denomination

Now or formerly Independent.

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