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 1875, but we understand it was closed in 1989, and the premises are now in secular use.

All Saints was built in 1875 to a design by George Gilbert Scott. It stands at the junction of Barton Street and the present Trier Way, a new road which replaced a former Midland Railway line serving the Gloucester Docks. The railway line crossed Barton Street by level crossing, skirted the edge of The Park, to pass through the Gloucester Dock area and rejoin the main railway line south of Gloucester. It was closed some time in the late 1970s, and when the new road was built, the level crossing became a junction controlled by traffic lights.

The church itself was closed for worship in 1989, and its building is now in use as an Anglo-Chinese Community Centre. The parish it served was joined to that of St James, in Upton Street, St James then becoming the parish church of St James and All Saints.

Our illustrations include an old postcard of the inside of the church, and present day photographs show the exterior, from Barton Street, and (the rear) from Charles Street. The modern photograph of the interior was taken during Gloucester Heritage Weekend, 2012, when the church was open to the public for the first time. Note that the original ceiling has been lowered, to accomodate an upper level, so sight of the East Window is now partially obscured. [Source: John Williams/Rosemary Lockie]

Denomination

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.
