Cemeteries

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 1984, and we understand it is still open.

The foundation stone for the church reads:

Church of St Joseph
Consecrated to the Glory of God
by His Eminence Cardinal George Basil Hume O.S.B.
Archbishop of Westminster on the 25th February 1985.

Planning for the church however began in 1980. It was designed by local architect Derek Montague, as a new venue for the congregation of the existing St Joseph's Church in Burton Road. It was built on a site released from council ownership which had been occupied by a Regency villa - Temple House - which had been in use as a children's home. Following the move of the congregation to the new St Joseph's, the old church was rededicated to the Polish saint, St Maksymilian Kolbe.

Denomination

Now or formerly Roman Catholic.

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