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 1964, but we understand it was closed in 1980, and the premises are now in secular use.

Bristol's first Sikh Temple - Shri Guru Nanak Prakash Singh Sabha Gurdwara - was established in 1958 at 8 St Marks Road, Easton - a converted next-to-end of terrace.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 12th June 1964 (p.5101) recorded its registration for marriages:

A Building certified for worship named NANAK PARKASH TEMPLE, 8 St. Mark's Road, Easton, in the registration district of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, was on 9th June 1964, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949, as amended by section 1(1) of the Marriage Acts Amendment Act, 1958. Dated 10th June 1964.

By the late 1970s, larger premises were needed, and numbers 71,73 and 75 Fishponds Road were acquired to convert to a Gurdwara. A notice published in the Gazette of 6th March 1980 (p.3588) cancelled the registration of the original premises as of 25th February 1980, though still under the name "NANAK PARKASH TEMPLE" - PRAKASH is the correct spelling.

Thereafter (I assume) the premises were closed for worship, and reverted to residential use.

Now or formerly Sikh.

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

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 Easton, Bristol, 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.

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

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