Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded about 1409, but we understand it was closed before 1884.

The Bristol Town Plan of 1884-1885 shows two (disused) graveyards in this area. This one was on the south east corner of the junction of John Street and Tower Lane. On the opposite side of Tower Lane were St John's Almshouses - this, and its proximity to St John the Baptist's Church, which had no graveyard marked in the area surrounding it, suggests belonged to St John's, as indeed turns out to be the case.

From above, Google Satellite view shows a grassy area, containing a tree with pretty white blossom. And a set of photographs of "St John's on the Wall Burial Ground" is available on the Flikr website, by courtesy of "shipscompass".

The other graveyard was in the middle of a block bounded by All Saints Street, Pithay, Duck Lane (now Fairfax Street), and Nelson Street, and is now part of a car park. It may have belonged to Christ Church, as apparently the church owned much of the land in the Pithay area.
