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 before 1914, but we understand it was closed in 1972.

The registration for marriages of a Salvation Army Hall in Easton Road is recorded by the following notice in The London Gazette of 28th April 1936 (p.2712):

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named SALVATION ARMY HALL, situated at Eastern Road, in the civil parish of Bristol, in Bristol registration district, in the county borough of Bristol, was, on the 22nd April, 1936, registered for solemnizing marriages therein pursuant to 6 & 7 Will. IV, c.85. Dated 24th April 1936.

Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1914 gives its address as between numbers 38 and 42 Easton Road. Old Maps of 1918 show a Hall on the south side of the road, directly opposite its junction with Stanley Street. So far as I am able to tell from Old Maps, this part of Easton Road is now part of the Lawrence Hill Roundabout, so evidently it was demolished when that area was cleared. A corresponding notice of cancellation appeared in the Gazette of 21st April 1972 (p.4852), and on the same date, the present Salvation Army, Bristol Easton Corps in Hassell Drive was registered, presumably as a replacement for the demolished building.

Denomination

Now or formerly Salvation Army.

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