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 1888, but we understand it was closed before 1966.

A comparison of Old Maps of the 1880s with early 1900s show that this Mission of the Tyndale Baptist Church in Whiteladies Road was built to the west of the Canon's House and Old Deanery in the Cathedral precincts, possibly on the site of an earlier building, connected to the two.

Phil Draper's ChurchCrawler website suggests it was built in 1868, but I'd be inclined to think it was 1888, as in 1868, the Church itself had only just opened, and the Mission itself is not shown on Maps until 1903. By 1918, the Canon's House and Old Deanery had been demolished, and a Public Library (known as "Bristol Public Free Library" in Kelly's Directory of 1914) built. The area now known as College Square was already laid out, a square, then known as "Lower College Green".

The Library was designed by Charles Holden, and built in 1906, and has now acquired the merit of being Grade I Listed. Phil suggests the Mission Hall was demolished to make way for the Library extension of 1966-68 "if not years beforehand". There is more information about the Library Building on the British Listed Buildings website.


Now or formerly Baptist.

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

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Bristol, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.
