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 1881, but we understand it was closed before 1914.

Various sources mention a Primitive Methodist Chapel in Mina Road, which was founded in 1881. The only one I can find a record of is in Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1902, a Primitive Methodist Mission Room, on the south-east corner of the junction of Mina Road with Treefield Street (now renamed as Mercia Drive). The next building listed, on the opposite side of the junction, was St Werburgh's Mission Room.

By 1914, the building in the same relative position (and by then labelled as #110) has become a Unionist Club, of which John Henry Comer was the honorary secretary. Old Maps do not label either the Mission Room or the club, but they show that the building on the corner differed from those on either side of it, in having a rounded corner, so having a "foot" in both streets, as it were. This design can be seen on several of the junctions of side streets with Mina Road, for example, on the north-east corner of its junction with Penfield Road, which at the time of the Google StreetView drive-past in 2012 was a public house called the Miners Arms.


Now or formerly Primitive Methodist.

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