We believe the Church does 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 1929, and we understand it is still open.

The roots of Methodism in Hucclecote can be traced back to 1838, when Richard Colwell, a recruit to the Wesleyan cause at Hartpury, came to live in Hucclecote. He started a Cottage Meeting at Yew Tree Cottage, but within 10 years, a permanent stone chapel was built.

By the turn of the 20th century, the premises had become too small, and an attempt was made to extend the Chapel, by the purchase, in 1908, of Chapel Cottage and its adjoining smallholding, which abutted the plot; however there were problems with the tenancy of the holding, and these plans never came to fruition. Meanwhile plans were drawn up for a new building on Carisbrooke Road, and the original scheme was abandoned. The Carisbrooke Road premises was opened officially on 14th November 1929.

Chapel Cottage was eventually demolished, and the land it was on sold, though its rear wall survives, now incorporated in the rear boundary of the Burial Ground.

More details are available in the "Our History" section on the Hucclecote Methodist Church website.
