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 1895, but we understand it was closed in 1964.

Phil Draper, on his ChurchCrawler website, records this Methodist Chapel as erected in 1895. It is built of dark stone, with contrasting pale stone dressings. The front has a large west window in the central bay, above a pointed-arched doorway, flanked by 2 smaller windows. The side bays have rectangular windows. Phil notes that the Chapel was opened by the Rev. Waller, president of conference, and that it has (had?) a resident male voice choir, still known as the Tudor Choir.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 7th February 1922 (p.1117) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named WESLEYAN CHAPEL, situated at Tudor-road, Easton, in the civil parish of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, in Bristol registration district, was, on the thirty-first January, 1922, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6th and 7th Wm. IV, c.85. Dated 2nd February 1922.

A similar notice, published in the Gazette of 31st January 1964 (p.984) cancelled the registration as of 27th January 1964. The Church of God of Prophesy, who acquired the building after it closed, was registered for marriages the following year.

Denomination

Now or formerly Wesleyan 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.
