Registered Wesleyan Methodist places of worship in Hertfordshire, 1867

Wesleyan Methodist chapels in Hertfordshire registered before 1867
This work incorporates historical material provided by the Great Britain Historical GIS Project and the University of Portsmouth through their web site A Vision of Britain through Time (

This is a list of chapels that had been registered by 1867, derived from ‘A list of places of meeting for public religious worship, certified to the Registrar General’.   Remember that registration was not compulsory. As registration was valid until cancelled, however, there may be duplication: i.e.  both the old and new chapels in a place may be listed. There are two examples in the following list. We have also discovered that the official location may not be the same as the name by which the chapel is commonly described.

Unless otherwise stated each of these places of worship is described as a chapel.

The numbers on the list relate to places, and match those on the map. The base map is provided under this licence

The chapels in Hertfordshire were part of the First London and the Bedford and Northampton Districts, and for information about their capacity, go to The Returns of accommodation of 1873

Another useful map is Plate 1 of  The Wesleyan Methodist Atlas
