This is a list of chapels that had been registered by 1867. Remember that registration was not compulsory. 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.

Use the search box to find out more about a chapel. The numbers on the map are linked to the following list. In a number of cases there were two buildings registered. Note the three clusters of chapels: the Exe and Teign estuaries; around Plymouth; and around South Molton. All are on railway lines.
