transcribed by David Tonks 2021

The 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious worship tells us that Rosamond (sic) Street Primitive Methodist chapel was erected in 1841. It accommodated 350 and on Census Sunday was well filled in both morning and afternoon.  The Return from the Primitive Methodist chapel to the Census was completed  by the steward, John Appleyard, of Brook Street.

The chapel is also listed in the 1867 Register of non-conformist chapels.

The 1877 Primitive Methodist magazine records  the laying of the memorial  stones for a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Rosamund  (sic) Street in the Manchester second circuit. . We are told nothing more, although the Primitive Methodist magazine does mention Rosamond Street chapel  in an article about Methodism in Manchester by W Barker 

Street View shows the Rosamond Street area as having been totally redeveloped.
