Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel 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 about 1861, but we understand it was closed before 1994, and the premises are now in secular use.

Glenside Hospital Chapel was built originally to serve Bristol Lunatic Asylum. During the First World War it was turned into the Beaufort War Hospital, then later in the 20th century, the Glenside Psychiatric Hospital.

By the time the Hospital closed in 1994, the Chapel had become derelict, but in the present day, it has been given a new lease of life. The Hospital itself is now used by the University of West of England as their Health and Social Care Campus, whilst the Chapel is the home of Glenside Hospital Museum.

Denomination

Now or formerly Hospital Chapel.

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

Resources

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Stapleton, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

Please also remember that the former Glenside Hospital Chapel (Private) is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
