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 in 1879, but we understand it was closed in 1968.

The location of this former Methodist Chapel/Church was first noted on Old Maps of 1884, close to, and opposite the junction of Easton Road and Bannerman Road. It has since closed, and has been demolished, but there is a photograph, taken in 1976, on Phil Draper's ChurchCrawler website. It had a central bay with a large 3-light lancet window, with mini turrets on either side of the bay, and narrow transepts with tall lancets.

Apparently it was already closed at the time of the photo, as the following notice in The London Gazette of 23rd May 1968 (p.5864) records its closure:

The Registrar General, being satisfied that METHODIST CHURCH, Easton Road, in the registration district of Bristol in the County Borough of Bristol, is no longer used as a place of worship by the congregation on whose behalf it was on 24th July 1909 registered for marriages in accordance with the Marriage Act, 1836, has cancelled the registration. Dated 17th May 1968.

According to Kelly's Directory of 1914, it was situated between #182 and #184 Easton Road (odd numbers). In the present day, a block of apartments, called Kiln Court, occupies its site.

Denomination

Now or formerly Free/United Methodist.

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