Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded in 1741, but we understand it was closed in 1947.

This is a separate Burial Ground for the Seventh-day Baptist Chapel which stood a short distance away. Originally it was an orchard belonging to the owner of the farmhouse which contained the chapel. There are memorials dating from 1761-1947, which have been transcribed by Gloucestershire Family History Society. Both chapel and burial ground are marked on Old Maps, for instance OS 1888-1891 1:10,560, where the chapel is labelled as "Baptist Chapel (Particular)".

The burial ground is enclosed by an ancient brick wall. This can be seen on our photograph, but as it is surrounded by private land, it was not possible to approach it any closer.

More information about the Seventh-day Baptist Chapel itself is available as a separate entry in the Database.
