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 1890, but we understand it was closed in 1972, and the premises are now in secular use.

"Greenbank Congregational Church" in Hinton Road, Lower Easton, is listed in Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1902 following the residence of James Glass, a Grocer, at the Co-operation Road end, and prior to number 47, the residence of Robert Phippen, another Grocer. By 1914 there was, possibly a change of premises, as "Castle Green Brotherhood" is listed close to the building's present location, between numbers 7 and 13. Possibly the change of name was a consequence of the transfer of Castle Green Congregational Church from the City to Greenbank in 1901.

The closure, as "Congregational Church, Hinton Road, Lower Easton", dated 3rd November 1972, was recorded in The London Gazette of 7th November 1972 (p.13145) in a list of buildings which "have wholly ceased to be used as places of worship by the congregations on whose behalf they were certified"... Its original certification was dated 20th February 1890.

In the present day, the building is labelled on Google Maps as "Chapel Studio". It is a long rectangular building, with a 3 bay front, having two rectangular windows to the ground floor, on either side of a central doorway, above which are three large pointed-arched windows, each divided into 6 lights, separated by glazing bars. This must provide a lot of illumination to the inside of the building, an admirable attribute for a photographic studio, though a Google search suggests it is a recording studio.


Now or formerly Congregational.

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