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 1947, but we understand it was closed in 1955, and the premises are now in secular use.

This place of worship was the forerunner of Westbury Park Spiritualist Church, in Cairns Road. Meetings were held in a room belonging to one of the shops built adjacent to the north-east corner of the junction of Kellaway Avenue with Cairns Road. The congregation subsequently built a dedicated Church building just around the corner in Cairns Road.

This occurred in 1955, which coincides with the closure of "Redland National Spiritualist Church, Ground Floor, 4, Kellaway Avenue", recorded in The London Gazette of 9th September 1955 (p.5124) in a list of buildings which "have wholly ceased to be used as places of worship by the congregations on whose behalf they were certified"... Its original certification was dated 10th November 1947.

In the present day (2012), the shops are occupied by a mixture of retail, and service premises, including the Bristol Chinese Medicine Centre. The former Church premises are now a Chinese take-away restaurant.

Denomination

Now or formerly Spiritualist.

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