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 1901, and we understand it is still open.

"Our lovely church, our church hall and our huge garden … provide a sanctuary in the middle of Greenbank…" [quote from St Anne's Church website.

St Anne's was built in 1900-1 as a mission of St Mark's (Easton), to a design by Sir George Oatley. A much larger church was planned originally, but the First World War intervened, and money ran out; however a sanctuary was added to the original plan, and in 1926 St Anne's was created an independent parish.

The parish was expanded in 1976 by the addition of that of St Thomas the Apostle's in Stapleton Road, when rotting timbers resulted in the building being no longer viable to maintain. A further expansion of the parish occurred in 1984, when the former parish of St Mark's, Easton, was added, when a similar issue troubled St Mark's Church fabric. Hence the parish is now known as "St Anne with St Mark and St Thomas, Eastville".

This account was prepared with the assistance of the excellent St Anne's website.

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.
