The only White Cross with a chapel I know is at Groeswen, Caerphilly.
 
anything and everything to do with the village of Brithdir, near New Tredegar in Gwent.

I've done lots of searches and that is the only one that I can find - either on Genuki or more general searches.

Groeswen is more or less half way between Pontypridd and Caerphilly.

Thank you for your help.

I have a marriage certificate from the 20th February 1851. Both parties live in Trallwm andare both from Ponty.
I assumed they would be married somewhere in Ponty area. The marriage was solemnized at The White cross chapel in the district of Cardiff ( Ponty registration didn't begin till 1863) .
Well Groeswen in the language of heaven means White Cross in English,  so it could well be right.

So is Groeswen chapel of the Independent denomination ??

Regards and thanks in advance.

Groeswen chapel is listed as Congregational and I believe that the Independents did become Congregational - mine were all Methodists or C of England* (inWales) :)

Hi,
You need to look in the following book:

The Religious Census of 1851: South Wales v. 1
A Calendar of the Returns Relating to Wales
Editor(s): David Williams

I don't have a copy to hand, maybe someone else does or maybe available through your library.
