We believe the Church does NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1873, and we understand it is still open.

"Trinity Episcopal chapel, in Hardwick mount" was erected in 1873, and enlarged in 1882-3, at a cost of £2,100. Kelly's Directories describe it as "a building of stone in the Early English style, consisting of nave, porch and a tower". In 1894, the church was further enlarged by the erection of a south gallery and porch and part of the tower. The following year, 1895, Bulmer's Directory described it as "a two-storey building with no pretensions to architectural beauty"; adding that on the ground floor is a well-lighted Sunday school with two class rooms, that the chapel was furnished with open seats of pitch-pine, the pulpit and reading-desk being also of that wood, whilst the lectern is of oak; and that the gallery contained a good organ. The Rev. Conrad Samuel Green was at that time curate-in-charge. In 1909, the tower was completed, and a new organ had been provided; the living then said to be a perpetual curacy, in the gift of five trustees.

The Rev. Green was still curate-in-charge in 1912, but by the time Kelly's Directory of 1932 was published the living had been held since 1929 by the Rev. William Thomas Jaye.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
