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 by 1939, but we understand it was closed by 1967, and the premises are now in secular use.

"Brendon Hall, Brendon Road, St John's Lane" first came to my attention in a notice published in The London Gazette of 7th February 1967 (p.1455), as one of a list of buildings which "have wholly ceased to be used as places of worship by the congregations on whose behalf they were certified..." Its original certification was dated 20th July 1939.

Whilst Brendon Road is easy enough to find, it has been difficult to locate the Hall, as the street is almost 100% residential. However, one building, on the east side, between Brendon Road's junctions with Dunford Road and St John's Lane, is a possible candidate. It is a long, rectangular building of brick, with a pebble-dashed front, generously supplied with windows. There are three in the front, two on one side of a roll-up garage door, and one on the other - an asymmetrical arrangement, suggesting, perhaps, a change from the original design, with the removal of one window, to enable the doorway to be widened. There are also windows in the side and roof. In other words, of an ideal size and appearance of once being a Meeting Hall.

The Hall is also mentioned in the list of Places of Worship available on the Bristol & Avon Family History Society website with a congregation of "Plymouth Brethren".


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.


This Church was located at OS grid reference ST5885171003. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:


I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Bedminster, Bristol, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

Please also remember that the former Brendon Hall is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
