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 by 1953, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when, and the premises are now in secular use.

This is one of two known former places of worship in Bristol with a Lutheran congregation. As #45 Sydenham Hill, the Church was evidently located in the right hand portion of a semi-detached building on the north-east corner of the junction of Sydenham Hill with Nugent Hill. The adjoining semi is #43.

The address derives from the following notice in The London Gazette of 24th April 1953 (p.2279):

A Building certified for worship named LUTHERAN CHURCH, 45, Sydenham Hill, Cotham, in the registration district of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, was on 17th April, 1953, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949. Dated 22nd April 1953.

There is no evidence in the present day (2014) that the Church is still open, though no corresponding notice of cancellation has been found.

Denomination

Now or formerly Lutheran.

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