Cemeteries

We believe the Church did 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, but we understand it was closed in 1959.

This building was first opened as a Quaker Mission Hall in 1880. It appears from the outside to be quite small, but in 1881, it was capable of accomodating at least 150, as morning and evening congregations are quoted as 60 and 150.

The building was enlarged for the third time in 1901, so obviously it was still doing well. In 1959, however, the hall was sold to Christadelphians, who apparently still occupy it today.

The 3rd photograph shows a close-up of the date stone and original building's dedication. The upper block still retains indentation of the word "Friends", whilst the two blocks in the middle may have read "Sherborne Street Mission Room".

Denomination

Now or formerly Quaker.

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