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 before 1904, and we understand it is still open.

All Saints ecclesiastical parish was created from parts of the parishes of St Mary, Fishponds, and Eastville in 1910.

According to the brief history on the Church's website, the congregation was founded in a series of tent meetings led by a Captain Hart of the Church Army, on land belonging to Miss Castle. She subsequently donated an area of 25 acres of land, on condition that 2 acres of it were to be used to build a church, a church hall and vicarage, and that the church be called All Saints. Building began in 1904, to a design by E.H. Lingen-Barker, and was completed in 1909.

Possibly this was Miss Mary Castle, living at 33 Charlton Road, Kingswood, at the time of Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1914. The only other Miss Castle listed was living in Redland.

The Bristol Record Office hold records of baptisms from 1905-1994, and of marriages 1910-2001.

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.
