Thornton: Kipping and New Road Chapels
Transcriptions of chapel records, memorials and
monumental inscriptions

Kipping Independent (Congregational) Chapel, is the oldest Independent/Congregational Chapel in the Bradford area. As such it has had much attention paid to it over the years. This CD-ROM, which is also available as a File Download from the GENFAIR website , brings together all the strands of information. New Road Congregational Chapel is an off-shoot of it and, because it continued to use the Kipping graveyards, is included on this fully searchable CD.

The CD consists of:

  • Transcriptions of chapel records, memorials and monumental inscriptions
  • History of each chapel
  • Over 70 photographs of memorials and headstones
  • Baptisms: 1756 - 1837 & 1879 - 1916
  • Burials: 1786 - 1978 (some gaps)
  • Transcriptions of monumental inscriptions in all 4 graveyards, supplemented with some earlier recordings

plus New Road:

  • Records from the church book
  • Baptisms: 1867 - 1911
  • Marriages, an informal record: 1868 - 1915
  • Burials: 1867 - 1879
