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 1914, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

This was a second Mission Room to St Silas's Church in Feeder Road. It is recorded in Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1914 as the first building in Grafton Street (St Philip's Marsh, 4 Victoria Road), and I am assuming it was the building marked on Old Maps of 1948-1951 as "Hall" at the north-west end of the street. The only other address listed in 1914 on the same side of the street was Brazil, Straker & Co. limited, a firm of engineers. On the other side were listed two shops, one residence, and the Grafton hotel, proprietor Mrs. Florence Fothergill, a beer retailer.

Grafton Street on the east side of Victoria Road, between Feeder Road, to the north, and Chapel Street to the south. In the present day, all its buildings have gone, but its "line" survives as a service road through a car dealership.

The other Mission Room was in Union Street.


Now or formerly Church of England.

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


This Church was located at OS grid reference ST6013572324. You can see this on various mapping systems. Note all links open in a new window:
