I am looking for a photo of this chapel as my Gt Gt Grandfather John Edward WARREN was baptised there in 1837. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction? I believe it was demolished in 1867 so the chances are probably slim, but you never know!

I have had a scout round the interwebby but have not yet stumbled across anything. Perhaps an engraving was done at some point that has not been posted online....

Meanwhile, it might be a good idea to contact either (or both) the Weymouth Museum (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/archon/searches/locresult_details.asp?LR=1437) or the Dorset History Centre (http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/archon/searches/locresult_details.asp?LR=31) to see if anything has been lodged with them. :smile5:

According to the timelines at weymouth-dorset.co.uk/timeline1800-1899.html (put www. in front) and
weymouth-dorset.co.uk/timeline1900-2006.html (put www. in front) the chapel in Coneygar Lane closed in 1867, but was not demolished until over a century later, in 1974 . . . so there's a good chance there will be photographs of the building.

That sounds more promising. Fingers crossed.
