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 by 1934, but we understand it was closed by 1997.

This building was, according to a list of Places of Worship on the Bristol & Avon Family History Society website, built originally for a congregation of (Plymouth) Brethren.

It is a pebble-dashed building with brick facings, having 2 tall rectangular windows in front, on either side of a central doorway and porch. The sides are of four pebble-dashed bays, with similar windows separated by brick piers.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 23rd November 1934 (p.7548) indicates its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named ABINGDON ROAD HALL, situated at Abingdon Road, Fishponds, in the civil parish of Bristol, in Bristol registration district, in the county borough of Bristol, was, on the 16th November, 1934, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6 & 7 Will. IV, c.85. Dated 18th November 1934.

A corresponding notice in the Gazette of 3rd March 1997 (p.2623) cancelled its registration, and in the present day, the sign on the outside building says it is the Quran Academy, Prayer Hall and Education Centre.

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.
