  • Good evening,

    I have been told that an ancestor of mine on my mother’s side was buried in the graveyard. He was Richard Dowding who died 19 Feb 1929.

    I would love to know if there is any record of his burial.

    Kind regards,

    Kay Brown

  • I live in this chapel, now a house. It was built in 1801 and decommissioned in 1964. It was converted to a residence in the 1980s. The previous owners passed on to us a box full of documents, photographs and history relating to the chapel, including service sheets for its 150th anniversary in 1951. We were led to believe it was one of the first, if not the first, Wesleyan Methodist Chapels in Herefordshire.
