Wickersley Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1879 Primitive Methodist magazine contains a note of the opening of a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Wickersley in the Rotherham station. They had raised over half of the cost.

The 1892 Ordnance Survey map shows a Primitive Methodist chapel on the south side of Bawtry Road just east of its junction with Morthen Road. There is a modern Methodist church building on the site on Street View (undated).

  • Jane,

    Wickersley Wesleyan Methodist Chapel was a different chapel to the Primitive Methodist Chapel. Any records that survive for the Wesleyan chapel would be located within Rotherham Archives and Local Studies Centre.

  • Hello,
    Would this be the Wickersley Weslyan Chapel that our ancestors were married in in 1910 (Hides and Fox) ? If so where would any records now be held. If you can help that would be great.

  • It would be good to add a picture to the site Katie and learn the names on the other memorial stones. You can send a picture to enquiries@engleseabrook.org.uk.

  • I have a poor quality photograph of the second Primitive Methodist Chapel built on this site and a photocopy of the inside.
    There are four founding stones which are still in existence, placed within the existing stone wall. One was laid by my 3x great grandfather: William Roddis, stone quarry owner 1878. Another was laid by John Varah and there are two more which I need to double check (before giving you false information) as the names are worn. Some of my ancestors were Primitive Methodist Preachers and appear on your website; one being George Normandale 1819-1875 and another of my 3x great grandfathers and perhaps the inspiration for the spread of Primitive Methodism in Wickersley.
