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 1970, and we understand it is still open.

The Church's website says Stonehouse's first Baptist Church was founded in the early 1900s. The present building opened in 1970, but prior to that, meetings were held in a 'Tin Tabernacle' on Woodcock Lane.

However additional information provided by Old Maps show a Baptist Chapel in the High Street by 1902, close to what is now its junction with Laburnum Walk. The Map also shows the 'Tin Tabernacle' in Woodcock Lane, then recorded as a Mission Hall. According to the Victoria County History series: A History of the County of Gloucester, Volume 10: Westbury and Whitstone Hundreds (1972), pp.287-288 (Stonehouse - Nonconformity), the Mission Hall became linked with the Baptist Chapel at Kings Stanley in 1967, at which time a site for a new Baptist Church in Stonehouse had been acquired.

Since 2009, Stonehouse Baptist Church has been in partnership with the Baptist Church in Minchinhampton. [Other Sources: Stonehouse Baptist Church, and various Old Maps]
