Cemeteries

We believe the Church did 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 1870, but we understand it was closed in 1914.

Seemingly this was another mission begun from the Parker's Row (later Brunswick Road) Baptist Church, established by 1870. Three houses were acquired that year for the mission, which was having morning and evening congregations of 44 and 60 by 1881. The buildings were used occasionally by the Salvation Army in 1906 and 1907, and exclusively by them from 1914 until 1919, after which the premises were sold.

Suffolk Street ran north-eastwards from Alvin Street towards Union Street, terminating in Foundry Street (a continuation of Sweet Briar Street). The street is now long-gone, as is Columbia Street, which ran parallel to it on the west, and Foundry Street itself, their houses demolished in the 1950s. They can however be seen quite clearly on Old Maps, for instance OS 1886 1:2,500. The earlier Town Plans of 1884 do not provide such a good overview, but the position of the Mission Room, on the east side of the street, can be seen more clearly there.

Denomination

Now or formerly Baptist.

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