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 1847, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

Kelly's Directory of 1923 describes Hinton as a hamlet 1 mile north of Dyrham.

Old Maps between 1881 and 1921 show an Independent Chapel south of the centre of the hamlet. However Maps of 1976 and onwards indicate it was most probably demolished by then. This is perhaps unsurprising, as the return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/331/2/1/2) indicates it was a "Wooden Chapel" (also called "Tabernacle"), erected in 1847 for a congregation of "Independant" worshippers. It was a separate building used exclusively as a place of worship, and there was seating for 100, all of which were free. The number of worshippers on March 30th was estimated as 40 in the morning, and 80 in the evening, with the afternoon Sunday School attended by 30 pupils. The return was completed by William Anstee, its Sunday School teacher, whose address was "Hinton".


Now or formerly Independent.

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