Welcome to My Methodist History where you can enjoy sharing photos, memories or research about anything to do with the Methodist Church since the various strands joined together in 1932.
Kate: that’s interesting about the book. I don’t know if you can upload images to here, but it would be interesting to see the actual certificate,
Thank you for your interest. The baptismal (and administrative) records for all the three Mountsorrel churches (Primitive, United, Wesleyan) are all deposited in Leicestershire Record Office. None of them had a burial ground. Mounsorrel has a municipal cemetary, and one of the reasons these were created was to allow Non-conformists to be buried according to their own religious rites. I would have thought it was likely that your ancestor was buried there. The cemetery is run by Mountsorrel Parish Council, so I think it would be worth your while contacting them at https://mountsorrelparishcouncil.co.uk/contact-us/
Many thanks to everyone, especially Kate for such a detailed series of recollections.
