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 in 1955, and we understand it is still open.

St Vincent's is one of four places of worship situated in the area of Southmead enclosed by Wigton Crescent and Glencoyne Square. Its foundation dates from the expansion of Southmead after WWII. Prior to that, Catholics in the suburb had attended either St Teresa's Church in Filton, or the Sacred Heart in Westbury on Trym. Services were held initially in the local community centre, until the new church was completed in 1955. It was dedicated on Low Sunday (the Sunday after Easter) that year. Until 1963, the church was served from St Teresa's.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 24th July 1956 (p.4299) records its registration for marriages:

A Building certified for worship named CHURCH OF ST. VINCENT DE PAUL, Glencoyne Square, Southmead, in the registration district of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, was on 17th July, 1956, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949. Dated 19th July 1956.

Denomination

Now or formerly Roman Catholic.

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