It presents statistics collected by the various Arminian Methodist denominations, by the Baptists (from the 1860s), and by the Calvinistic Methodists in Wales (again from the late 1860s) as well as periodic newspaper surveys of church and chapel attendance published in the four decades before the First World War.

Keywords:   church membership, chapel attendance, Arminian Methodists, Baptists, Calvinistic Methodists, newspaper surveys
