Chapels - Oxwich

This project is fully described on Glamorgan Chapels Database

This Oxwich database compiled by Gareth Hicks

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 Gareth's Help Page )
