Hi Chris,
I think you're making the same mistake I made when joining this forum, and that you've seen the word "Chapel" used in the burial record and assumed it was a non-conformist chapel and not a C of E church.

I've just re-read your prior post and specifically the reply giving Fanny Jane Hoare's Burial Record and I can't see a mention of Whitecroft Road.

For clarity, the burial record is:

Record_ID: 33688
Entry_Number: 380
Year: 1963
Month: Jan
Day: 29
Surname: HOARE
Forenames: Frances Jane
Residence: Royal Oak The Pludds Ruardean
Age_at_death: 80
Officiating_Minister: P.Walton Vicar
Event: Burial
Notes: In this record given name listed as Fanny guess at Frances
Register_Reference: P57 IN 1/19
Page_No: 48
Parish_Chapel: Bream
Soundex: H600

The exact same place is mentioned in other family bural records.

In spite of that place being described as "Chapel", it actually refers to the local Church of England building, which in this case is Bream St James church as already suggested by Alison. The word "Chapels" is used in the PRs Database as a "catch-all" for both "Parish Churches and Non-Conformist Chapels", and any cases that differ from this are highlighted within the transcription of the PR concerned.

This subject arose a few months ago, and here is Admin's comment which clarifies the way the PRs are presented: https://forum.forest-of-dean.net/index.php?id=50535

If you revisit the Burial PRs search engine, and open the drop-down menu part labelled "Parish/Chapel" to give the long list of all the possible locations, you'll only find one under "Bream". This shows that these records all relates to Bream St James - by comparison for nearby Clearwell you'll find two options; Clearwell (church) and Clearwell Methodist.

I hope this helps, and you are able to find your ancestors at Bream St James churchyard.

The Monumental Inscriptions for Bream are recorded on this cd available from Glos FHS. It's possible it may also have a plan of the cemetery.
