Other Churches

As Thornbury has long had a Nonconformist tradition we have also managed to collect records relating to the Quakers and other Nonconformists groups.  For more detailed information see below.

Thornbury Baptist Church.  We have a collection of information about the history of the church, records from the parish registers and other sources, details of the ministers and the social life of the church.  Click here to read more

The United Reformed Church.  We are grateful to Robin Pencavel and other members of the United Reformed Church for their help in gathering photographic and other records of the church and the events held there.  Through their help and that of the Gloucester Archives we have collected information about the church’s history and its records of births, deaths and marriages.  Click here to read more

Methodist Chapel –  the new Wesleyan Chapel was built in the High Street of Thornbury in 1877 or 1878, depending on which source is correct.  The source we have here from a scrap book in the Gloucester Records Office suggests it was built in 1877.  Click here to read about the history of the Chapel.

We have also found a small collection of baptism and marriage records from the Methodist registers.  Click here to see these records
