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.

This Chapel was shown on Old Maps of the late 19th century attached to, or associated with the former Union Workhouse Building, which later became known as Laburnum House. The chapel was directly opposite to the plot occupied by a Cemetery extension, to the south of, and adjacent to the original Cemetery plot, in Rectory Road.

Though it was still marked with a '+' on my OS Map of 1980, it is not clear now whether either the Chapel, or the Workhouse building are still standing.

Denomination

Now or formerly Hospital Chapel.

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