In St Mark's Church, Witton, Blackburn. The church closed, has been on the market, and a sale is currently going through, with future conversion to a residence. My thanks to the Blackburn office of Lea Hough for arranging my visit.
Major Feilden is also named on the Royal Scots Greys' memorial, in Edinburgh.

TO THE GLORY OF GOD AND IN LOVING MEMORY OF
MAJOR C. W. M. FEILDEN D.S.O. ROYAL SCOTS GREYS
BORN MARCH 13TH 1863 DIED IN SOUTH AFRICA FEBRY. 19TH 1902

DEATH OF MAJOR FEILDEN.
Mr. R. J. Howard, the Witton estate agent, Blackburn, has received a telegram reporting the death of Major C. W. M. Feilden, D.S.O., of the 2nd Dragoons (Royal Scots Greys), who was severely wounded in the engagement at Klippan, near Nigel, in the Transvaal Colony, on Tuesday.
Addressing an education meeting at Blackburn on Saturday, Bishop Thornton made reference to the death in South Africa of Major Feilden. He said it was an abominable thing for these Boers to go on doing these murderous things without any possibility of attaining their end. It was hate, it was devilry, which animated the Boers, and the most precious blood was being shed in consequence of it.

I mostly see Methodist chapels converted into homes. The shape of St Mark's should make for an interesting conversion project.
