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 1906, but we understand it was closed in 1938.

The Church of St Peter & St Paul was built in 1907, for a mission which had begun in 1906, meeting in a baker's loft in Blackswarth Road. It is described in Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1914 as a "conventional" district (did they mean "conventual"?), with the Missioner being Rev. Frederick John Webb, B.A.

The dedication was changed to St Leonard "Without" in 1925 to reflect the support obtained from the parish of St Nicholas & St Leonard in the City - the parishes were united in 1771, after St Leonard's Church was demolished. Please see Phil Draper's ChurchCrawler website for more details of this fascinating history.

The Church of 1907 was replaced by a new building in 1938, built on an adjacent plot to the south, after which the original building became the Church Hall. Please see the entry for St Leonard in this database for more information about the buildings in the present day, as it is likely both are now (2014) closed.


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.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
