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 1883, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when, and the premises are now in secular use.

A place of worship is shown on Old Maps of 1883-1885 at this location, labelled as "Chapel (Christian Brethren). In Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1902 it is listed as "Hampton Road Gospel Hall" between #60 (even numbers), London, Gloucestershire & North Hants Dairy Co. Limited, bakery, and #66 Hampton Road, the residence of James A Hayes; and in Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1914 as "Brethren Gospel Preaching Rm." between #62, John B. Skinner, and #66 Hampton Road, Miss Annie Mitchell, a costumier. In that year, #60 was occupied by Goodenough & Skinner, electrical engineers.

This suggests it was numbered #64, but it would appear that its official address, at least according to the following notice in The London Gazette of 11th April 1902 (p.2437) was #66:

NOTICE is hereby given, that a separate building named HAMPTON ROAD ASSEMBLY ROOM, situated at 66, Hampton-road, Redland, in the civil parish of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, in the registration district of Bristol, being a building certified according to law as a place of meeting for religions Worship, was on the fifth day of April, 1902, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th Wm. IV, c.85. Dated 8th April 1902.

In the present day, #64 is a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, whilst #66 appears to be in private occupation. Perhaps in the past, however, there may have been a closer relationship between the two buildings, as whilst they do not appear to have been built at the same time, they share a dividing wall.


Now or formerly Christian Brethren.

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