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 1862, but we understand it was closed in 1969.

Kelly's Directory of 1923 records that the Brethren had a small chapel in Yate, erected in 1862. This is, I presume, the building which is marked on Old Maps of 1903 as a Chapel, and by 1951 as a Gospel Hall. It was west of the junction of Station Road with Church Road, close to the road now leading to the rear of Yate Shopping Centre. Kelly's Directory also mentioned a small Baptist Chapel, which was close by, both of them in the oldest part of Yate.

Although it is still marked on Maps of 1970, it seems probable that the following notice in The London Gazette of 13th May 1969 (p.5027) records its closure:

The Registrar General, being satisfied that MEETING HOUSE, Yate in the registration district of Sodbury in the county of Gloucester is no longer used as a place of worship by the congregation on whose behalf it was on 23rd June 1920, registered for marriages in accordance with the Marriage Act, 1836, has cancelled the registration. Dated 5th May 1969.

Denomination

Now or formerly Brethren.

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