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 1828, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

The return to the Religious Census of 1851 (HO 129/330/5/6/13) named this place of worship as "Baptist Chapel", at "Hallen in the Parish of Henbury", built in 1828, a "Separate & Entire" building used "Exclusively as a place of worship & Sunday School". There was free seating for 80, and 40 "other" sittings, with an average of 30 worshippers to morning service, and 60 in the evening, with 30 Sunday Scholars to afternoon classes. The return was completed by Thos Redwood, "Chapple Keeper", whose address was "Halen Nr. Henbury". "He remarked that the Building belonged to the Bristol Baptist Movement Society.

The position of the Chapel is shown on Old Maps covering the period 1881 to 1973 - in 1881, labelled as "Baptist Chapel (General)", and later as "Baptist Church"; however it has now been demolished, and the War Memorial, which used to be on the corner of Severn Road and Moorhouse Lane, now occupies its site. There is an old postcard captioned "Church and Severn Road, Hallen" showing the latter in its original position as part of Paul Townsend's Photographic Archive of Henbury.

Denomination

Now or formerly General 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.
