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 1871, but we understand it was closed before 1941.

Old Maps of, for example, 1902 OS 1:2,500 indicate this was one of two Baptist Chapels in Tetbury, this one described as "Particular Baptist" on the Map. The other, situated in Church Street, was described on the same Map as simply "Baptist", but another source (Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Gloucestershire (1986)) says it was also "Particular Baptist" - confusing, huh?

By 1923, however Kelly's Directory of that year described the chapel in Church Street as simply "Baptist", whilst the one on The Green was said to be Calvinistic, erected in 1871, and with 150 seatings.

The Chapel in Church Street still survives, and is now a Listed Building, whereas the Chapel on The Green had become disused by 1941, when it was bought at auction by Father Harrison on behalf of the Catholic Community in Tetbury, founded in the late 1930s. Thus it now has the honour of being St Michael's Catholic Church.


Now or formerly Particular Baptist.

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