In May 2008, the Minister at St Paul's Methodist Church, Sowerby Bridge who had responsibility for the Ebenezer Chapel, decided to sell off the graveyard at the Chapel. He abandoned the proposal after a public protest from those who had buried members of their family there.

In October 2009, it was announced that Ripponden Parish Council had bought the graveyard and were working with the Friends of Ebenezer on the future of the site.

In 2010, houses had been built on the site and only the gates remained. A section of the graveyard still remains behind the houses.

Some of the monumental inscriptions in the graveyard are shown in the CD entitled Halifax Monumental Inscriptions #1
