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 1898, but we understand it was closed in 1954, and the premises are now in secular use.

This Church first came to my notice in a Church Commissioners Report on Pastoral and Closed Churches in Bristol Diocese, on the Church of England website, where it is recorded as having closed on 22nd October 1954. It is shown on Old Maps for the first time in 1903 - earlier Maps show the Salisbury Road area was yet to be developed.

Phil Draper's ChurchCrawler website records that it was erected in 1898, originally as a hall, which was consecrated in 1931. Note however that Kelly's Directories of Bristol of 1902 and 1914 both describe it as "St Katharine's Church", as do Old Maps.

The Bristol Record Office's Parish Register catalogue indicates records exist of baptisms 1928-1953, and marriages 1929-1954. After it was closed, according to the Church of England's document, it was still in parochial and ecclesiastical use for a time, temporarily used for storage, and then finally in 1982, disposed of for residential use.


Now or formerly Church of England.

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


This Church was located at OS grid reference ST5854475005. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:
