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 1878, and we understand it is still open.

This building is named in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) as "Wesley Chapel".

It is aptly described in the list of places of worship recorded in the leaflet South Gloucestershire Nonconformist Heritage Trail (PTE050151.pdf) available (in 2013) on South Gloucestershire Council website as "a good example of the use of the spiky Gothic revival style of architecture for a late 19th century church". It was designed by Robert Curwen.

It was preceded by an earlier building, in Chapel Lane, now Cossham Hall, which is described elsewhere in this database.

For more recent information, you may also like to visit the website of the Bristol & South Gloucestershire Methodist Circuit, to which Thornbury Methodist Church belongs.

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.

Resources

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Thornbury, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
