This is a list of chapels that had been registered by 1867. Remember that registration was not compulsory. In reality there were a further four UMFC places of worship in the county. 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 situation in Leicestershire was complex, so two maps are provided. The first shows the three Methodist New Connexion chapels, which were urban.
The second map plots the chapels of the Wesleyan Methodist Association, later known as Free Methodists in black, and of the Wesleyan Reformers in blue. Some of these societies reverted to being Wesleyans, some joined the UMFC, whilst others remained outside the mainstream in the Wesleyan Reform Union. There are two groups, one on the Leicestershire coalfield, and the other in the Loughborough area.
The numbers on the list relate to places, and match those on the map. The base map is provided under this licence
