Norland Mount Zion Primitive Methodist Chapel

Mount Zion Primitive Methodist Chapel  still stands next to houses known as New Longley in Norland, near Sowerby Bridge. It is now in residential use.  It still has its graveyard

The chapel was built in 1863-4 and closed in 1971.

Thanks to Philip Parkinson for the picture.  Philip’s antecedents were Primitive Methodist adherents in the 19th century in Yorkshire and  part of the group which built the Mount Zion Chapel

  • I have been looking up some of my ancestry recently I am a beginner at this task. Looking at some of the records the cemetery of this former chapel appeared in relation to my fathers family. Apparently my great grandfather Joseph Dixon and his wife Annie Preston Dixon are buried there. They died in 1920-21. I now live in Queensland Australia so can’t visit easily. Wonder if anyone who lives there could kindly verify this for me I would be very grateful

  • Richard, when a chapel closes the records tend to go to the local authority, so contacting West Yorkshire archives would be one line of enquiry.

    Also worth exploring are some of the suggestions in the guide created by Geoff Dickinson – My Process for Exploring the Family History of Primitive Methodists – on the Research resources area of this website.

  • Hi,
    my name is Richard Wolsey. I have relatives buried in the graveyard, and wondered if anyone has any information about any of the Wolsey family.
