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 1811, but we understand it was closed before 1971, and the premises are now in secular use.

'Bethesda Chapel' is described by Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Gloucestershire (1986) as "Coursed stone walls with polygonal front and large tablet above entrance. Gallery around five sides and fielded panelled front supported by iron columns". It was closed before 1971, and is now in secular use, but remains a Grade II Listed Building. According to the British Listed Buildings website, the tablet above the entrance is "lettered in fine C19 serifs", and reads 'BETHESDA MDCCCXI'.

NB: Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses publication says the chapel was opened in 1821, but the general consensus of opinion is that 1811 is correct.

Denomination

Now or formerly Baptist.

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