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 1899, but we understand it was closed by 1958.

Brockworth Congregational Chapel was first opened in 1899 as a Mission Hall of the Tyndale Congregational Church in Stratton Road, Gloucester, in premises occupied previously by a Baptist Cottage Meeting House. The position indicated for the chapel is as marked on Old Maps, for instance 1903 1:10,560.

As "Brockworth Congregational Chapel" its closure was recorded in The London Gazette of 7th November 1958 (p.6812) in a list of buildings which "have wholly ceased to be used as places of worship by the congregations on whose behalf they were certified"... The date of its original certification was given as 21st September 1956, so apparently, it had only been registered for 2 years. It was superseded by a larger meeting place, nearer to the centre of Brockworth, and ultimately by the present Church building ("Brockworth Free Church URC") in Moorfield Road. Since then, its former home in Green Street has been demolished, and a new property, named "Chapel Cottage" now occupies its site.

Denomination

Now or formerly Congregational.

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