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 1750, but we understand it was closed after 1800.

Recorded in Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Gloucestershire (1986) as built in 1750, together with a small cottage alongside which served as a minister's house. In the early 19th century the property was leased, and in 1845 sold to the Wesleyans. The Wesleyans built a new chapel (now Apperley Methodist Church) next door in 1901, and rebuilt the cottage. The former chapel has a three bay front, with its long axis at right angles to the present church, and according to the above reference, is used for storage. Inside, however there are six late 18th century Moravian tablets, to Elizabeth HEATH (1770), Esther HOPE (1771), Timothy WATTS (1769), William DOVEY (1768) and one which is no longer readable dated 1778.


Now or formerly Moravian.

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