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 1818, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when, and the premises are now in secular use.

The return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/406/13/1/2) for the Wesleyan Chapel in Upper Quinton describes a separate building erected in 1818 used exclusively as a place of worship. It had free seating for 70, 60 "other" sittings, and standing room for 30. The estimated congregation on March 30th was 61 in the afternoon, and 50 in the evening, and there was an average of 60 attending morning service. The return was completed by William Wadams Fisher, who was Steward and Classleader, and lived in "Upper Quinton, Nr. Mickleton, Gloucestershire". His remarks indicate an "Ecumenical Partnership" at this early date: "when there is service at Church in the Afternoon then service is morning and evening at the chapel".

Old Maps of 1885 indicate the Chapel was set at the north west corner of an area labelled as "The Green" - an expanse of uncultivated land, criss-crossed by various tracks. The present road structure (Taylor's Lane) was in place by 1922, when the Chapel is still marked, but in the present day, whilst the building survives, it has been converted into domestic use.


Now or formerly Wesleyan 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.

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 Wesleyan Chapel is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
