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

We don't know when this Place of Worship was founded, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

A building near to this position is marked on Old Maps, for example OS 1880-1881 1:2,500 as 'Chapel (Bible Christian)'. It was later known as Cinderford Zion United Methodist Chapel. The Gloucestershire Archives Office have the Minutes of Trustees and Leaders' Meetings 1912-1921 amongst their records.

The Bible Christians were formed in 1815 as a secession from the Wesleyan Methodists. In 1907 they merged with the United Methodist Free Church and the Methodist New Connexion to form the United Methodist Church.

Later maps, for instance OS 1974-1991 1:2,500 show a building labelled "Church" facing Abbey Street. This may have been a separate use of the same building, by the congregation listed in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) as "Abbey Street Christian Fellowship".

It is not known when the Baptist Chapel was closed, and there is no evidence of the Church there today. In fact the whole surrounding area appears to have been subject to considerable development in recent years.

Denomination

Now or formerly Bible Christian.

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