That's interesting, though having now dug around for some old photos, I wonder if the map has got it wrong? See this photo of what appears to be an old chapel, though it's on the opposite side of the road from the burial ground:
(others of Tong Street in same collection via - enter "Tong Street" in search box)

And a modern view, from the person who photographed the burial ground:

(It can also be seen on Google street view, at the corner of Oddy Street.)

It's not impossible that a chapel on a restricted site might have had a burial ground across the road, and maybe "Holme Lane" refers to the general area rather than its precise location. But I haven't managed to find anything about this particular building, and whether it could at one time have been called Zion.
