Tabernacle, Rosemarket

Note 2:
Tabernacle Chapel Rosemarket was built in 1831. It serves members of the United Reform Church. Early in the century over a hundred people attended services. Now [pre 2011] there are only six members. A service is held every Sunday afternoon. The chapel has no minister but Rev D. Morgan of Tabernacle, Milford Haven preaches once a month. The organist has been a regular member for over seventy years. No young people go to chapel and the members believe it may not be very long before Rosemarket Chapel closes altogether. They feel very sad about this but they are probably right.
