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 1960, but we understand it was closed after 1971, and the premises are now in secular use.

As "Lutheran Church House", this place of worship first came to my attention in the listing of Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010) at the said address, and with a congregation of "Lutherans".

A notice of closure was recorded in The London Gazette of 19th March 1971 (p.2593) 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"... for a building originally certified on 24th November 1960; however a further notice, in the Gazette later that year, 8th June 1971 (p.6059) rescinded the notice:

The Registrar General, being satisfied that LUTHERAN CHURCH HOUSE, One Room, Ground Floor, 29 Fernbank Road, Redland in the registration district of Bristol in the county borough of Bristol, continues to be used as a place of worship by the congregation on whose behalf it was on 24th November 1960 certified in accordance with the Places of Worship Registration Act, 1855, hereby rescinds his notice of the 22nd February 1971 cancelling the record of certification. Dated 18th May 1971.

Though no documentary evidence of its subsequent closure has been found, it seems unlikely that as part of a private residence, it is still open in the present day (2014); however perhaps further research will resolve the issue one way or the other.


Now or formerly Lutheran.

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

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 Lutheran Church House is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
