Cemeteries

We believe the Church does 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 1997, and we understand it is still open.

This place of worship appears to be one of a block of large red brick "town houses", though in fact it was built initially in 1894-5, as St George Secondary School. Kelly's Directory of 1914 records it as originally one of the schools under the late St George Board; and transferred to the Bristol School Board under the Bristol Corporation Act of 1897. The fee was 7 shillings a term. "The Secondary School is a continuation and development of the old St George Higher Grade School". The headmaster was Mr. F. Pickles M.A., Prizeman and Bursar of Edinburgh University, "assisted by an efficient staff of qualified teachers".

Early Maps show it simply as "School", by 1951 it was labelled as "Grammar School". The sign on the outside now reads "Siri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara Bristol".

The following notice in The London Gazette of 28th May 1997 (p.6253) records its registration for marriages:

A Building certified for worship named SIRI GURU SINGH SABHA, 301-303 Church Road, St. George, Bristol, in the registration district of Bristol in the City of Bristol, was on 16th May 1997, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act 1949 as amended by section 1(1) of the Marriage Act Amendment Act 1958. Dated 20th May 1997.

Denomination

Now or formerly Sikh.

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