Chapels - Gelligaer

This project is fully described on Glamorgan Chapels Database

This Gelligaer database compiled by Gareth Hicks

  • Aberbargoed was included below (in error) - actually within Bedwellty parish in MON
  • New Tredegar is not included here as within Bedwellty parish in MON
  • Ystrad Mynach is included here although bits of it may be in Llanfabon parish
  • Maesycymmer is included below (in error) - actually in Bedwas parish in MON

If a chapel is already mentioned on the main parish page then its name will act as a link to that section for any data recorded there - such as extant records and OS Grid references

Some chapels may have more than one entry if it is not possible to correctly identify each from a particular source

(For an explanation of the various non-conformist denominations see Wales - Genealogy Help Pages )
