Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel 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 1911, and we understand it is still open.

The tower with spire, attached to this chapel is a Grade II Listed Building - see British Listed Buildings website for details. Their account records that a previous Methodist Church which stood on the site, was burnt down in 1939.

The tower and spire were added as a War Memorial to the chapel. The chapel itself was rebuilt in 1952, but is said by the Listed Building site to be "of no special interest architecturally".

According to Kelly's Directory of 1923, Wycliffe College was built in 1882. The Victoria County History series: A History of the County of Gloucester, Volume 10: Westbury and Whitstone Hundreds (1972), pp.287-288 (Stonehouse - Nonconformity) says the Wesleyan chapel was built in its grounds in 1911, to be used mainly by the school, but it also became the chapel of the local Methodist community - presumably replacing an earlier Wesleyan Chapel, shown on Old Maps in Regent Street.

Denomination

Now or formerly Wesleyan 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.
