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 1890, and we understand it is still open.

This building must have been one of the first, if not the first place of worship to open in Southmead. It is built of red brick, with sides of four bays, each bay having a double lancet window; and a central porch, above which is a venetian style window, with matching lancets, and a date stone above it which reads "Southmead / Gospel Hall / A.D. 1890". More recent signage, on either side of the central window, reads "Kingsholm / Church", in white lettering on a green background, contrasting with the green barge-board trims - it is a good-looking church.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 10th December 1897 (p.7420) recorded its registration for marriages:

NOTICE is hereby given that a separate building named Gospel Hall situated at Southmead in the civil parish of Westbury on Trym in the county of Gloucester in the registration district of Barton Regis being a building certified according to law as a place of meeting for religious worship, was on the fourth day of December 1897, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th Wm. 4, c.85. Dated 4th December 1897.

It is recorded in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) as "Kingsholm Church", and "Unsectarian".


Now or formerly Unsectarian.

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


This Church is located at OS grid reference ST5865677754. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:
