This Church has (or had) 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 1841, and we understand it is still open.

St James was opened in 1841 as a Chapel of Ease of St Michael's parish. Since 1989 St James's parish has been combined with that of All Saints (Barton Street) to form the combined parish of St James and All Saints; however the church remains dedicated to St James.

The former All Saints church building remains in use as an Anglo-Chinese Community Centre.

It should be noted that whilst St James has a graveyard, it is now (2011) closed, and burials take place in the City Cemetery at Coney Hill. [Sources: John Williams, and Rosemary Lockie, from City of Gloucester Places of Worship]


Now or formerly Church of England.
