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 1884, but we understand it was closed before 1914.

This is obviously a lesser known Whitfield Memorial Congregational Church. Its location, on the north-west corner of the junction of Ashley Road with Norrisville Road, is shown on Old Maps up to 1903, and it is recorded in Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1902 between #83 Ashley Road, the residence of Charles Richard Parsons, and #85, Walt. R.T. Hawkins, a surgeon, with Norrisville Road intervening. Old Maps show a substantial rectangular building, with nave, a porch, and transepts, and seating for 400. It would appear, again from Old Maps, that by 1916-1918, houses had been built on the site, and indeed, in Kelly's Directory of 1914, the relative location is occupied by three households - the residences of George Henry Monks, of Cheviot House, Frank Stephens, of Whitfield, and Frederick Willis, of Tintern Villa. Sadly, nothing further is known of its history.


Now or formerly Congregational.

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