CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The history of the congregational cause in Benllech, Anglesey can be traced back to 1820 when Tyn y Gongl chapel was built by William Pritchard. The chapel was re-built in 1824, but was short lived due to the emergence of a new chapel, the Tabernacle in 1834.
In the late 19th century, a Mr Robert Roberts of Brynteg and John Parry of Porth Llongdy Uchaf expressed a wish to build a new chapel. The Architect of the new house of worship was Mr Richard Davies of Bangor. Work began on collecting money towards the building work and on 6 March 1900 the first sermon was preached in Benllech Congregational Chapel. The cause was still flourishing in 1920.
