Cemeteries

We believe the Church does/did not 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 1951, but we don't know whether or not it is still open.

This place of worship first came to my attention in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010). It is shown on Old Maps of 1971 on the south-east corner of the junction of Brunswick Square and Surrey Street, labelled as "First Bristol Spiritualist Church". The building on its right (west) was part of Brunswick Square, and the building on its left was labelled as a Public House.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 26th October 1951 (p.5603) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named SPIRITUALIST CHURCH situated at Ground and First Floors, Surrey House, Surrey Street in Bristol registration district in the county borough of Bristol was on the 18th October 1951, registered for solemnizing Marriages therein, pursuant to Section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949. Dated 22nd October 1951.

No corresponding notice of cancellation has been located, but equally, there is no sign in the present day that the building is still open for worship.

Denomination

Now or formerly Spiritualist.

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