We believe the Chapel 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 1848, but we understand it was closed before 1902.

Wycliffe Chapel can be seen on the Bristol Town Plans of 1884-1885, on the north side of Guinea Street, approximately half way between its junction with Jubilee Place and the main road, Redcliffe Hill (A38). The book Bristol and Its Environs (1875), published by the British Association, notes that it became Congregational in 1848, having been erected by the Wesleyans originally.

It appears to have been quite a large, rectangular, building, with seats for 500. It was situated in the bottom left hand corner of the plot occupied by the Vicarage belonging to St Mary Redcliffe, sharing its frontage to Guinea Street. Sadly however, this may have been its last appearance in official records, as Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1902 records "Redcliff Parish Rooms" adjacent to the Vicarage - occupied by the vicar of St Mary Redcliffe, Rev. Walter John Forbes Robberds. From this, I assume that the building had been taken over by the Anglican Church by then.


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.
