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 in 1851, but we understand it was closed before 1987, and the premises are now in secular use.

The return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/331/1/2/5) is for a place of worship with no name in Pucklechurch for a congregation of Primitive Methodists. It was a shared building. with 40 sittings, all free. The return was completed by Hugh Bennetts, its Manager, who lived at "Pucklechurch, Glostershire". The average congregation was entered as 40, with an additional remark that "the Congregation is often Fiftey or More".

Evidently, a popular meeting, as the same year, according to the datestone on the building, a permanent chapel was built. It is built of stone, with a round-arched central doorway, on either side of which are tall round-arched windows, with 2 similar windows in the side visible from the road. Above the datestone is a quatrefoil light. There is also a basement, and the front door is approached by a flight of steps.

Early Maps label it as "Primitive Methodist Chapel"; by 1974-1979 it is labelled as "Pucklechurch Methodist Church". There is evidence in a Gloucestershire Archives document, D10377/1/72 (Northavon Chapels Survey) that by 1987, it had been adopted by the Jehovah Jireh movement. The File "also contains sales particulars relating to the sale of the chapel after its conversion into private accommodation".


Now or formerly Primitive 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.
