Cemeteries

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 1888, and we understand it is still open.

The plaque at the apex of the entrance porch reads:

Sabbath School Erected 1888.
Memorial to the late
Thomas GAZE,
who for 30 Years was the devoted
Superintendent of the Wesleyan
Sabbath School in this Parish.

The first Methodist Sunday School started in a half timbered cottage, since demolished, which stood at the entrance to Chosen Way. Thomas Gaze became its superintendent soon after 1849, when Hucclecote's first Methodist Chapel was built. After he died, his brother Edwin, who was not a Methodist, arranged to have a new Sunday School building, the Thomas Gaze Memorial Hall, erected in his memory.

The Sunday School was used briefly for worship in between the time when the old Methodist Church became unsafe, in 1928, and the opening of the new Methodist Church in Carisbrook Road in 1929.

More details are available on the Hucclecote Methodist Church website.

Denomination

Now or formerly Wesleyan Methodist.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
