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 in 1925, but we understand it was closed by 1999, and the premises are now in secular use.

Notices published in The London Gazette indicate there was a Meeting Hall in Prince's Place, Bishopston (off Gloucester Road) in existence by 1925. It has, however, been through many changes since then - refurbishment, or rebuilding of existing premises, or a change in congregation - as may be deduced from the following notices in The London Gazette of registrations for marriages, and subsequent cancellations:

  1. "Princes Room, Prince's Place, Gloucester Road" was registered for marriages on 12th January, 1925. A notice of cancellation was published on 5th April 1957 (p.2142)
  2. "Denmark Hall, Princes Place, Bishopston" was registered for marriages on 1st January 1957. A notice of cancellation was published on 9th May 1968 (p.5302)
  3. "Princes Place Meeting Room, Princes Place, Bishopston" was registered for marriages on 14th March 1968. A notice of cancellation was published on 13th March 1980 (p.3943)
  4. "Meeting Room, Prince's Place, Bishopston". A notice of cancellation was published on 28th October 1999 (p.11490), but no corresponding date of registration has been found.

One of the Meeting Halls may have been a long, rectangular building, still in existence, on the left of Prince's Place; but the most recent, and most likely, would appear to be on the right hand side - a square building, of brick, with a hipped roof, and a sizeable car park, protected by sturdy railings, and a metal gate; now, however, in secular use.

Prince's Place is to be found between #219 and #221 Gloucester Road (the east side). It lies parallel to Denmark Place, which is between #211 and #213 Gloucester Road. Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1914 also records it as "Princess Place", but this may have become a source of confusion at a later date, as a street of that name also existed in Clifton.

Denomination

Now or formerly Plymouth Brethren.

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