This is a list of chapels that had been registered by 1867. Remember that registration was not compulsory. Both denominations had at least two other places of worship in the county at this date, although the patter remained the same. 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

The Methodist New Connexion chapels were in the industrial north of the county. The United Free Methodists had a rural presence.
