Hooley Hill Wesleyan chapel, Guide Lane, Audenshaw was founded in 1807 and closed in 2004. Although the letter refers to a Roll of Honour in the chapel with nine names, the author chose not to mention the two whose full details he was unable to obtain. The evidence suggests that the details of Jos. W. Brindley and F. Arden arrived at the last moment.
