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 1902, but we understand it was closed after 1914.

My information of Rownham Mission Hall comes from Kelly's Directories of Bristol of 1902 and 1914. It is recorded in the street directory section of the former as "Rownham Hall", and in the latter (as "Rownham Mission Hall") between #290 and #292 Hotwell Road. The Stork Hotel (now, presumably Stork House) was at #288, and #290 was a cider merchant; #292 was the Swansea Arms.

I have been unable to find out what denomination it belonged to, as whilst it is recorded in the Ecclesiastical Directory section under "Mission & Gospel Halls" in 1902, there is no mention of it in 1914.

Denomination

Now or formerly Mission Hall.

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