Cemeteries

This Church had 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 before 1930, but we understand it was closed in 1980.

Kelly's 1932 Directory records that the Ripley Spiritualist Progressive Church was then situated in Heath Road. Possibly this was the "Mission Room" shown on Old Maps of 1939 a few doors east from the junction of Heath Road with Meadow Road. Or it may have been the "Hall" marked on the south-east corner of the junction of Heath Road and Manvers Avenue.

Its closure was recorded in The London Gazette of 17th March 1980 (p.4125) in a list of buildings which "have wholly ceased to be used as places of worship by the congregations on whose behalf they were certified"... Its original certification was dated 17th May 1930.

Though is not possible to tell for sure from Google StreetView, as the StreetCar has not visited that part of Heath Road, it seems most likely that the Mission Room has been converted into a private house.

Denomination

Now or formerly Spiritualist.

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