Thanks to Linda Edwards for the picture of the ceremonial Trowel used at the laying of a memorial stone for the Primitive Methodist chapel at North Woolwich.  The inscription reads:

“Presented to Mrs Dartnall by the trustees of the North Woolwich Primitive Methodist Church on the occasion of her laying a memorial stone November 5th 1879”

Selina Dartnall was the wife of William Dartnall, probably the Architect of the chapel.   William was Linda’s three times great grandfather..  You can read about him here.

Where was the chapel and what’s its story?

  • North Woolwich Wesleyan was in Silvertown, so that should be the area to look. Before county boundaries were tidied up in the late nineteenth century it was a little bit of Kent north of the Thames. Dockland, in other words. This link provides a bit more information
