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 in 1878, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

This Baptist Chapel (General) was located on the Bristol Town Map of 1884-1885, whilst searching for the former Jewish Burial Ground in Rose Street. It was on the south side of Tower Street, and said to have seats for 100. It occupied the equivalent of 2 blocks on the street, as did the nearby Methodist Chapel, in Rose Street, which ran parallel to Tower Street, to the south.

It was founded in 1878 as a mission of Counterslip Chapel, which had moved to a new building in Victoria Street that same year.

The area was cleared in 1913, when the land was compulsorily purchased by the Great Western Railway to extend the Goods Yard at Temple Meads Station. Only a small portion of the original Tower Street now remains, and the site of the Chapel lies beneath Temple Way. Note also that in the 19th century two Temple Streets existed. The other ran between Castle Street and Castle Green, and no longer exists.

Denomination

Now or formerly General Baptist.

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