United Methodist Free Churches in London

United Methodist Free Churches in London 1898
Free Methodist Manual, 1899

The Free Methodist Manual includes a map of the chapels in Greater London in 1898.  A sense of their strength may be gauged from the Circuit membership figures from 1906. There was also a religious census of London in 1902-1903, and information on the attendance figures will be added to this page in time.
