Salem Congregational Chapel Memorial


The Salem Congregational Chapel was a non-denominational chapel which stood in Sheepwash Lane, Great Bridge. The chapel closed in 1972 and was demolished two years later. Salem was an abbreviation for Jerusalem.

After the chapel closed, the memorial was stored in the Salem Hall (since re-named The Hub) which is used by the British Legion. The memorial is now in the care of St. Peter’s Church, Greets Green.

There are 18 names on the memorial including the only woman commemorated on a Tipton memorial - Louisa York who was killed in the zeppelin raid of 31st January 1916.

The memorial is a marble plaque with carved ‘drapes’ at each end, the names are carved and coloured black.
