Has anyone written a history of this chapel, please? I believe my great grandmother, Selina Lane, was church keeper here in 1901 and I would like to know more about her. Her son became the Rev. Henry Tyler Lane, a Methodist minister.

A furhter thought. The best sources for caretakers are the records of chapel trustees (minutes, accounts and working papers). The can give details of hiring and firing, remuneration, and job description. They may have been deposited at the local county archives or, in the case of chapels which are still open, they could remain with the current trustees.
