The Lye and Wollescote Cemetery Chapels in Cemetery Road, Lye, West Midlands DY9 8AL is a Grade II listed building in recognition of its architectural and historical importance as part of the UK's national heritage; it is a rare surviving example of a cemetery chapel designed to incorporate two chapels within a single building.

The associated cemetery continues in use but the two chapels, at opposite ends of the building, are redundant: the nonconformist chapel was closed in the 1970s and the Church of England chapel closed following a fire in 1993 which caused minor damage to the interior.

This historically important building is at risk until a new secure use is found.
