This is a list of chapels that had been registered by 1867. Remember that registration was not compulsory. It is clear from Methodist sources that the majority of the Methodist New Connexion chapels in Flintshire, and half the Bible Christian chapels in Monmouthshire do not appear in the list. 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. The base map is provided under this licence

As can be seen, the Bible Christian presence was along the south coast, facing the heartland of the denomination across the Bristol Channel. Cornish tinners were involved.The Methodist New Connexion presence is in the industrial north, missioned from Cheshire. The United Methodist Free Churches are in urban centres.
