Methodist Church on Witton Street and Brook Street. It stands on the site of Bourne Primitive Methodist Chapel, dated here to 1876-7. It's now called Northwich Methodist Outreach Centre. SJ 6633 7407. Bruce Read. The source just referred to mentions a predecessor of 1842 on John Street, and includes photos. SJ 6599 7394.

Another Methodist Church (originally Wesleyan) used to stand on London Road at SJ 6588 7328. Chapel Court (small blocks of flats) now stands on the site, seen by Streetview in 2022.

Double Mortuary Chapel in the cemetery on Church Road. In every other example I've seen of a double mortuary chapel, they have been shown as Church of England and Nonconformist. In this case, the large-scale map of 1898 labels them as Nonconformist and R.C.  SJ 6644 7368. Bruce Read. One must presume that the Anglicans made use of the facilities provided by St. Helen's church, which stands adjacent to the cemetery. Link.
