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 1958.

Old Maps show that Christ Church was situated on the south-east corner of the junction of Lincoln Street and Ducie Road, on a site now occupied by Lawrence Hill Church, a modern 1960s combined Methodist and United Reformed Church. It comprised a nave, and semi-circular apse, with a separate hall on the east side of the Church - and occupied a similar "footprint" to the present building, though overall slightly larger, as today, there is space at the rear for a small car park, and a block of townhouses has been built to replace the Church Hall.

According to John Latimer, in The Annals of Bristol in the Nineteenth Century (1887), its building was proposed following an enquiry in 1882 into "the dearth of religious agencies amongst the rapidly increasing suburban population". It was one of six new churches undertaken around that time - "the foundation of Christ Church, Barton Hill, the first undertaken, was laid by the mayor (Mr. Weston) in July, 1883". It was completed by 1885, and consecrated on 12th November that year. Phil Draper, on his ChurchCrawler website says it was designed by C.F. Hansom; also that its last service held in 1958, and the church thereafter demolished.


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.
