This is a list of chapels that had been registered by 1867. Remember that registration was not compulsory: there were probably more chapels at this time. 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, or a chapel might have been registered both before and after 1857, when the United Methodist Free Churches were founded.  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

Most of the Methodist New Connexion and United Methodist Free Church chapels were in the industrial south of the Riding. Both denominations had chapels in York. In Rotherham a Protestant Methodist chapel was still registered, which is highly unusual.
