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 the 11th century, and we understand it is still open.

St George's Church is a Grade I Listed Building - see the British Listed Buildings website for details.

John BAKER was hanged at Gloucester Prison on 1st September 1821. He was buried the following day at King's Stanley Parish church. At the age of 16 he was the youngest male to be hanged at Gloucester Prison. According to Gloucester Gaol Registers, 1815-1879, he came from Wotton under Edge.

The following information about the Church has been provided to accompany the photographs on the right. A list of people who have supplied the information is included in the Acknowledgements, below.

[Image 2] The reverse of this postcard says:
“From your loving sister

[Image 3] On the back of the postcard there is a message
“Dear (?)A / U. We will come Saturday Mor before 12. Please not to put your self about for us. Sorry you have been so poorly. Love to all. Yours (?)V. L.”,
but it has been crossed out: presumably the sender had second thoughts!
It is addressed to “Mr A. Matthews, High Street, Cheltenham.”[1]

[Image 4] This postcard dates from some time after 1902 (when the first picture postcards were produced). Compare it with a photograph of St George's Church today.

Printing on the reverse states:
“Photo & Published by T. S. Lapington, Gloucester.”[1]


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.
