We believe the Church does 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 1883, and we understand it is still open.

The parish of St Paul is now (2010) combined with that of St Stephen, in Bristol Road, following the retirement of its last vicar, and all church services are now held at St Paul's.

The church, by Capel N. Tripp, "was built to relieve pressure on the churches of St James and St Luke and as a memorial to Robert Raikes on the centenary in 1880 of the Sunday School movement".

Five years later (1888), a Mission Hall to St Paul's was opened in Tredworth Road. The Mission Hall premises are now occupied by the New Apostolic Church.

The sketch accompanying the photographs is a Plan of the 1914-18 War Memorial, designed as an external 'preaching pulpit'. It is signed by J (John) Coates Carter, of the Manor House, Prestbury, and dated 1916.

Now or formerly Church of England.
