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 in 1878, and we understand it is still open.

The Salvation Army has been in Acre Street since 1878, according to the Churches Together in Stroud website. Meetings are held in what was built originally as a Methodist chapel, known as "Acre Street Chapel", an octagonal building which opened in 1763. The Methodist congregation moved to a new building when a new Wesleyan chapel was opened in Castle Street, on 27th October 1876.

Denomination

Now or formerly Salvation Army.

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