This Church had 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 1902, but we understand it was closed after 1914, and the premises are now in secular use.

In 1902, according to Kelly's Directory of Bristol of that year, this Salvation Army Barracks was situated between #183 Hotwell Road, a coffee tavern, run by Thomas Sims, and #185, the Direct Boot Stores, boot makers. Old Maps show that this was a long, very narrow building, 4 doors along from the south-west corner of the junction of Hotwell Road with Pembroke Place. This long, narrow aspect can still be seen in profile from Google Satellite View, as the building is still in existence; however its external decoration suggests it may now, or in the past, have become part of #183, an Indian restaurant.

Comparing entries in Kelly's Directory of 1902 and 1914, it would appear that by 1914, the Salvation Army had moved to the building on the corner with Pembroke Place, which in 1902 was occupied by Buckingham Chapel Mission Room. By way of comparison, Mrs. Kate McCauliffe, who in 1902 ran a general store at #179 Hotwells Road, and John Ponting, an ironmonger, at #181, were still trading; however #181A, Eastman's Limited, a butcher's, had become the premises of William Charles Hayes, a greengrocer; and Thomas Sims' coffee tavern (#183), had become John Roberts' refreshment house.


Now or formerly Salvation Army.

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