Cemeteries

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 1849, and we understand it is still open.

Warmley ecclesiastical parish, or consolidated chapelry, was founded on 21 November 1851 from the parishes of Bitton, Kingswood, Oldland and Syston (Siston). Kelly's Directory of 1923 describes St Barnabas's Church as "an edifice of stone in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave of five bays, aisles, south porch and a western tower with spire, containing 6 bells". The east, west, and two windows in the south aisle are stained. The organ was presented in 1885, as a memorial to the Rev. Thomas Henry Howard M.A. vicar 1860-85.

The British Listed Buildings website records it as built 1849 by James Park Harrison, mentions a priest's door to the chancel, and a scissor brace roof, and two wind lobbies (to north and south entrances) with chamfer panels and cresting and decorative strap hinges.

There is a large graveyard, or perhaps more appropriately it may be called a Cemetery.

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.
