Hartlepool Grange Road Primitive Methodist chapel

Tankerville Street Hartlepool TS26 8DU

Whilst doing some background research looking for Grange Road Primitive Methodist chapel in Middlesbrough, completely by accident I found a picture of Grange Road Methodist church in Hartlepool  Across the front it says in capital letters “Primitive Methodist Church” and on the side in Tankerville Street it says “Primitive Methodist School 1883”.

There are pictures of both buildings on the Hartlepool History Then and Now website.

There are other photographs on the website, including a view of the chapel interior, Grange Road itself and a 1928 certificate presented to Mrs E. Forstad to commend second prize in a home baking competition.  The certificate was provided by Brown and Polson Ltd., makers of cornflower, raisley (whatever that may be) and custard powder.

The Sunday School was in fact the original chapel, opened in June 1887. It became the Sunday school when the church building was opened later, in 1906.

The church is still active in 2016.  Could anyone supply a current photograph please?

The Grange Road, Middlesbrough chapel I was looking for is still a mystery.
