Welcome to ‘My Wesleyan Methodists’ where you can enjoy sharing photos, memories, stories and research about anything related to the Wesleyan strand of Methodism from its 18th century beginnings until the establishment of the Methodist Church in 1932.
I collect memorial cards and have one for Rev. T. Escritt, Wesleyan reform minister of Middlesbrough. Who died in Grreatham, August 30th 1860, aged 29.
My great aunt, Annie Webber, may be in this photograph but I only saw her at age 98. She died, age 100, in the Beccles nursing home in the 1970s.
In the light of further research the above needs to be corrected. The schoolrooms reported in 1940 were in fact in the former chapel in High Street. The College Street chapel measured 49 feet by 36 feet 7 inches and seated 248 people on the ground floor. The gallery was on all four sides and seated 156. There were two vestries or classrooms Source John Rylands Library University of Manchester DDPD1Methodist Accommodation returns, 1940 No 686
