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 1866, but we understand it was closed in 1978.

Trinity Methodist Church was situated on the north-east corner of the junction of Whiteladies Road with Ashgrove Road. John Latimer, in The Annals of Bristol in the Nineteenth Century (1887), records that it was the second place of worship built by the Wesleyan Methodists in Whiteladies Road, and was opened on 1st November 1866 by the Rev. W. Shaw and the Rev. W.M. Punshon. Pembroke Chapel, in Oakfield Road, built for Congregationalists, had been opened the previous day.

Old Maps show it was on the north-east corner of the junction of Whiteladies Road and Ashmore Road - evidently quite a large building. There is a description, and photographs on Phil Draper's ChurchCrawler website.

Phil says it was demolished in 1978, but its formal closure was not recorded in The London Gazette until 21st March 1980 (p.4475) - one of a list of buildings which "have wholly ceased to be used as places of worship by the congregations on whose behalf they were certified"... the date of its original certification has not been found. In the present day, its site is occupied by blocks of apartments, but the base (campanile) of its steeple survives as a feature in the grounds.


Now or formerly Wesleyan 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.
