Ardwick St Silas is a chapel created in the year 1842.
ARDWICK, a township with two ecclesiastical district chapels, including St Thomas and St Silas--both lying within the parish and borough of Manchester, union of Chorlton, hundred of Salford, S. division of the county of Lancaster, 1 mile (S. E. by E.) from Manchester. St Thomas Chapelry was built by the year 1740.
The chapel of St. Silas' was built in 1841. The Wesleyans and Independents have places of worship; and there is a public cemetery of eight acres, opened in 1838.
By the year 1880, Ardwick township had at least four chapelries built within it, and all resided within the parish boundary of, and under the ecclesiastical jurisdiction of Manchester Cathedral (Our Lady, St George & St Denys). See the names of these four chapelries in the "Church Records" article, below.
Birth, marriages and deaths were kept by the government, from July 1837 to the present day. The civil registration article tells more about these records. There are several Internet sites with name lists or indexes. A popular site is FreeBMD.

Ardwick St Silas is one of four chapelries that comprised Ardwick Township (in Manchester Cathedral, ancient parish). And it was one of over 150 chapels comprising the whole of Manchester Parish's vast boundary (by 1880). The 'mother' or ancient parish of Manchester City is Manchester Our Lady, St George and St Denys Cathedral, which see (below).
If you do not locate your ancestor in the chapelry links and in the Manchester Cathedral links (above), be certain that before you research in any other Lancashire parish, you must include a thorough search in all of Manchester City's attached chapelries (over 150 of them)! Unfortunately, Manchester Cathedral (the parish) is England's largest parish. Thus for purposes of thoroughness in your research, you must search each one of Manchester's chapelries' baptisms, marriage and burial registers (where extant). To see and then search what's online for each one of Manchester City's chapelries and district churches--view a complete list of all its chapels, HERE (scroll down under "Church Records").
