Former Methodist New Connexion Chapel (and later Primitive Methodist) on Batley Road, now in commercial use. David Regan (2012).

Former Moravian Chapel on Walkley Lane. My appreciation to Phil Todd for confirming the identification, who further adds that it is now in use as a dance/stage studio, and also advises that the large building at the right was the church hall and Sunday School, and the slightly lower building beside it was originally the manse, and, latterly, home to the caretaker of the local Moravian properties.

Mosque on Victoria Street. David Regan (2012).

The former Mount Zion Chapel at White Lee, now a nursery. David Regan (2012).

St. Saviour (Anglican), which appears to have been a rather superior tin tabernacle, in a photo of 1910, though the church dates back to at least 1890. Photo is on an external site.

Salvation Army. David Regan (2012).

The former Upper Independent Congregational Chapel has been converted into flats. The adjacent building was originally the Sunday School, but is now where the U.R.C. meet. Both David Regan (2012).

A (presumably) demolished Wesleyan Chapel, location uncertain. Link is to external website.

The site of Westgate Congregational Chapel is now gardens, though some of the gravestones remain. It was a splinter from Upper Chapel in 1786. AKA New Chapel or Lower Chapel, it was demolished in 1974. Link1. Link2 (old photo of the chapel).
