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 1893, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when.

The former St David's Mission Church is situated on the south-east corner of the junction of Beauley Road with Park Road. It was founded originally as a Mission of St Paul's Church, in Coronation Road, Southville. According to Phil Draper's ChurchCrawler, services began in a private house in 1893, and then were transferred to a hall in Raleigh Road, which was rented until the Church was built in 1908.

It was dedicated to St David in 1913, but had ceased being a church prior to WWII, becoming firstly St David's Hall, and then the Church Hall of St Paul's. It did, however substitute for St Paul's after it had been destroyed during WWII, and prior to its rebuilding in the 1950s, then again in 1990, when St Paul's suffered storm damage.

By the beginning of the 21st century, it had, as one might say, outlived its usefulness, and by May 2003 (so Phil says), had been converted into four flats. Nevertheless, it is still, in my opinion, a spectacular building, having experienced what might be described, in estate-agent-speak, as a "sympathetic conversion", which maintains its essential "church-ness", but is sufficiently accomodating to its new functionality.


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.
