United Methodist Free Church places of worship registered before 1867

UMFC places of worship in Cumberland 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. Remember that registration was not compulsory. There were at least two more chapels open at this time.  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. 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. In Cumberland the United Methodist Free Churches were found in the mining area in the west of the county. The base map is provided under this licence
