Church History

We don't know when this Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded, but we understand it was closed before 1884.

This Burial Ground (already labelled as 'Disused') may be seen on the Bristol Town Plan of 1884-5 on the north side of Mitchell Lane. I have not found any documentary references for it, but one possibility is that it was the Burial Ground connected with Counterslip Baptist Chapel formerly in Bath Street, and (after 1878) in nearby Victoria Street. John Latimer, in The Annals of Bristol in the Nineteenth Century (1887), refers to burials in Counterslip Baptist chapel being prohibited in 1854, following the 1853 Act, though one would expect that also to apply to the Mitchell Lane ground.

Mitchell Lane is a side street off the west side of Victoria Street which still exists in the present day. Its burial ground - obviously - has been cleared, and the area is now occupied by offices.


Now or formerly a Cemetery.

In most cases this will be a record of its original consecration.
