    Default Marriage certificate, Colchester,

    Hello,

    I'm having trouble reading the name of the church in which my second great grandfather was married, in Colchester, 1843.

    Perhaps someone with local knowledge, and the ability to read old documents, would care to take a look?

    I haven't been granted access to make attachments, so I made this link to the certificate, hopefully it can do the work..

    I can't make out the second word but I believe the first and third words are "the" and "chapel", unfortunately this isn't much help.

    Although looking again, it could be the Stockwell Street Chapel.
