History

With the closure of the chapel and conversion to luxury flats, the roll was removed from its frame and disposed of in a skip, from which it was retrieved by the present owner. 2008: Only one Methodist Church now exists in the town, in a modern building financed by the sale of former sites. In 2008 it did not accept any responsibility for memorials formerly in local churches there are 6 Methodist memorials noted as being in need of relocation.
