United Methodist Free Churches registered by 1867

Essex - United Methodist Free Churches in 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 in Essex that had been registered by 1867. Remember that registration was not compulsory.  We have also discovered that the official location may not be the same as the name by which the chapel is commonly described.

The United Methodist Free Churches presence in Essex was limited to Colchester and the eastern suburbs of London. By 1898 Colchester and Brightlingsea no longer had a UMFC presence, but the work in Greater London flourished.

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
