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 before 1902, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when, and the premises are now in secular use.

The registration for marriages of a Salvation Army Hall in Felix Road is recorded by the following notice in The London Gazette of 15th November 1921 (p.9074):

A Separate Building, duly certified for religious worship, named SALVATION ARMY HALL, situated at Felix-road, Easton, in the civil parish of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, in Bristol registration district, was, on the eleventh November, 1921, registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to 6th and 7th Wm. IV, c.85. Dated 12th November 1921.

Whilst its location is not marked explicitly on Old Maps, a building labelled as "Hall" is shown, in the present day, occupied by The Scorpion Centre, with an address of 25-27 Felix Road. It is a long, rectangular building, with an unusual rounded and stepped gable.

It has not been possible to discover when the Army removed from the Hall, as no corresponding cancellation notice has been found. I had thought at first they may have removed to Salvation Army premises in Easton Road, which were registered for marriages on 22nd April 1936; but both were in existence when Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1914 was published, the Salvation Army Barracks in Felix Road being recorded between numbers 23 and 29, which today equates to the address of the Scorpion Centre. The premises do however predate 1914, as Old Maps up to 1903 show the original name of Felix Road was "Coal Pit Road", and a Salvation Army Barracks is recorded there in Kelly's Directory of 1902. "Coal Pit Road" was so-called (I assume) as it ran along the northern boundary of the Easton Colliery; and it was renamed once the Colliery was closed.


Now or formerly Salvation Army.

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

Please also remember that the former Salvation Army Barracks is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
