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 1826, but we understand it was closed before 1974, and the premises are now in secular use.

The location of this Chapel is shown on Old Maps. On OS 1884 1:2,500 it is labelled "Ebenezer Chapel (General Baptist)". It was also recorded at the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/344/1/6/9) as "Cubberley Chapel", a separate building erected in 1826 to be used exclusively as a place of worship. It had free seating for 150 and 40 "other" sittings, and there was free space or standing room measuring 30 feet long, 20 wide and a gallery 30 by 10. The estimated numbers at Divine Service on March 30th were 76 in the morning and 110 in the afternoon, with 20 Sunday Scholars to each. The return was completed by Phillip Weaver, Deacon of the Chapel, who lived in Hatherley Lane, Cheltenham.

The Chapel appears to have been closed for some time, as it is no longer shown with a '+' on my OS 1:50,000 of 1974; and is certainly now in private ownership.


Now or formerly General 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.

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

Please also remember that the former Cubberley (Ebenezer) Chapel is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
