Chapel of the Month – June 2016

This month we have a contribution from Ray and Marie Ella who were keen to share some information about their cherished home – a very small Primitive Methodist Chapel built in 1859 in Cumberworth near Alford, Lincolnshire.

Ray, a retired historian, and Marie bought the chapel in late 2015 and have carried out a great deal of research into its history. The results of their diligent efforts can be found on the My Primitive Methodist Ancestors website. This is a great example of the value of local research and the potential to be able to share this information widely via the internet.

Ray and Marie are also the proud owners of two Primitive Methodist Centenary plates. An interesting article illustrating the Centenary plates can be found on Dave’s Little Blog.
