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 1879, and it has since been demolished, but we don't know when.

St Mary's was a Mission of St Mary Redcliffe, but - unusually for mission churches - had its own set of baptism registers covering the period 1882-1941. Barnard's Place was the lower end of what was then Colston Street. The latter ran parallel to, and to the east of Somerset Street. St Mary's stood on the north east corner of its junction with Clarence Road, and can be seen on the Bristol Town Plans of 1884. An associated school room was first licensed for divine service in January 1879, and a licence issued for Barnard's Place itself on 29th January 1882. [Bristol Record Office: Ref P/St.MR/BP/2]

The fact that the registers end in 1941 suggests it was damaged during WWII bombing. Certainly, both the building, and the street it was part of, no longer exist in the present day, as their site is occupied by blocks of apartments, and car parking.


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.
