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.

Phil Draper's ChurchCrawler website records two Mission Churches of St Matthew, Moorfields - one dedicated to St Saviour, and the other dedicated to St Chad. Searching Kelly's Directories of Bristol of 1902 and 1914 in conjunction with Old Maps, I have only been able to find one - on the east side of Devon Road, just past its junction with Whitehall Road. It is labelled as "Church" on Old Maps of 1918, and was, apparently the same building which at the time of the Bristol Town Maps of 1882 was labelled as a School. It was set diagonally in a triangular plot, and had a well, and in 1882 was surrounded by fields.

Corresponding Maps of the 1950s no longer label the building as a Church, but it still exists in the present day. It is a long, rectangular building, with 6 bays facing towards Devon Road, 5 with two-light rectangular windows, and there is a small bell-cote at its south-west end, with a weather vane on top.

Denomination

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.
