We believe the Church 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 before 1881, but we understand it was closed after 1972.

This former Chapel, or Church is marked on Old Maps, on the south west corner of where a footpath crossed what is now The Common. The present day Avenue Road now follows the line of the footpath on the north side of The Common, whereas on the south side it appears to have been partially retained. Its earliest known appearance is on OS 1881 1:2.500 as "Methodist Chapel (United Free)". By 1935-1936, it had joined the Methodist Church, and it is still marked on Maps of 1972.

Its forerunner may be the return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/332/2/5/9) of "Part of a Common Dwelling House" in Patchway, belonging to George Hunt (who filled in the form). It had seating for 35, and an average evening congregation of 30 worshippers. "The meeting herein referred to has been established for a short time, the consequence of the Division in the Wesleyan Body".


Now or formerly Free/United 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.
