Wesleyan Methodist Pinfold Street, Darlaston.

A number of Steathams - notably Joseph Steatham (1806-1889), and his descendents became Methodists.

The Wesleyan Chapel in Pinfold Street chapel cost 2,500 and in 1833 the chapel was enlarged, the original plain facade improved and the burial ground at the rear opened.

The land for the graveyard was obtained from Mr. Griffiths in exchange for land owned by Joseph Yardley and Jabez Bills.

The Chapel was demolished in 1970, and the burial ground was lawned, and there are few gravestones remaining, none of them are Steathams.

Although it is not quite apparent from the photos, this cemetery is in fact only just across the road from Asda.

Both Joseph Steatham, and his wife Sarah [Nee Dangerfield], amongst others, are buried here.
