Chapels database

This project is fully described on Glamorgan Chapels Database

See also the Cardiff  Places of Worship database produced by Glamorgan FHS

This single database compiled by Gareth Hicks - it arbitrarily embraces 4 central parishes of Cardiff, i.e Roath, St Mary, St John and Llandaff, into one list. Entries are listed alphabetically by the place name (not parish) or street name

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 Gareth's Help Page )

Sources referred to (indicated by number shown in brackets after the data entry) where there may be more data available

Details of extant records on Archives Network Wales for the following;

  • Hannah Street Congregational Church, Cardiff records  
    "In 1856, three members of Ebenezer Welsh Congregational Chapel, Cardiff, Glamorgan, recognised the growing need for religious provision in the town's thriving docks area. A site was secured for the purpose on Mount Stuart Square, and opened as a Welsh Congregational Chapel in May 1858. By 1912, Mount Stuart Square had become a busy commercial centre, leading the chapel to move to a new site on nearby Pomeroy Street. The Rev. John Davies, the first minister at Mount Stuart Square, recognised that there was also a demand for English language services in the Docks. These began in 1866, and Hannah Street English Congregational Chapel was built and opened in 1868. The original building was sold in 1917, and during this period the congregation met at Patrick Street. In 1928, the new building, also on Hannah Street, was opened. Although damaged in an air raid during 1943, it was rebuilt, with greater seating capacity. The chapel later affiliated with the United Reformed Church. It held its final service in 2002"
