The 1885 Primitive Methodist magazine records  the laying of the foundation stones for a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Wednesfield in the Wolverhampton station.  It was to cost £500

Where was this chapel and what happened to it? How does it link to the chapels in the Wolverhampton Archives Methodist Church Index which  includes the following Primitive Methodist Wednesfield chapels:

  • Wednesfield Hickman Street Primitive Methodist 1846-1964
  • Wood End Primitive Methodist 1860-1930

  • You can read a little about Rev Joshua Dyke here.

  • My great grandfather, Rev. Joshua Dyke, was ordained a minister in the Primitive Methodist Church by Rev. Samuel Antliff, D.D. On July 29, 1872 Rev. Joshua Dyke received a gift of a Cassell’s Biographical Dictionary from “teachers and friends of the P.M. Society, Wednesfield before leaving for Canada”. I don’t know which PM church he attended in Wednesfield. In Canada he began ministry in the PM District of Bradford, Simcoe, Ontario. In 1902 he was elected Mayor of Fort William, Ontario, and served 2 years as Mayor. Rev. Dyke was the founder of Wesley Methodist Church (now Wesley United) in Fort William, Ontario. He died there 12 August 1934.

  • Wood End Primitive Methodist Church, Wednesfield, dates were 1860 to 1982 when the building was replaced with a new church for the Wednesfield Methodist Church. Wednesfield Trinity Methodist Church was the former Wesleyan Church to which the members of Hickman Street (former Primitive Methodist) went in 1964
