Cemeteries

We believe the Church does 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 1894, and we understand it is still open.

John Latimer, in The Annals of Bristol in the Nineteenth Century (concluded, 1901) records that the dedication service for the newly erected church of St Alban, Westbury Park was held on May 6th, 1894. The cost of the building was about £3,300. It is the only church (to my knowledge) in Bristol which is dedicated to this particular saint.

The building Latimer describes was superseded by the present St Alban's, which was erected during the period 1907-15 to a design by C.F.W. Denning adjacent to (to the south of) the first building. This is a far larger "Gothic" structure, and in my opinion not so attractive as the original, designed by local architect, Henry Crisp, which is more a classic "country" church, with a red tiled roof, and a small spire. It has, however been retained by the parish, and is now a Church Hall.

At the time it was built, Westbury Park belonged to the parish of Westbury, so St Alban's was a daughter church of Holy Trinity. In the present day, however, it operates as a Local Ecumenical Partnership with the former Westbury Park Methodist Church. Together, they are known as "The Church in Westbury Park".

Denomination

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.
