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 by 1927, but we understand it was closed by 1930, and the premises are now in secular use.

As "Wesleyan Mission Rooms", this building, open only for a few years, was somewhat difficult to locate, as Oak Road is (or appears to be) wholly residential in the present day. Numbers 73 and 75 Oak Road are adjacent premises, on the east side of the street, facing towards the junction with Elm Road, but they appear, from the outside, to be two separate properties, with separate driveways, and wholly in residential occupation. This is not, however, as they appear on detailed OS Street Maps of 2013, which show cojoined premises, with a single driveway, labelled as "Hall".

The following notice in The London Gazette of 12th August 1930 (p.5047) recorded its closure:

NOTICE is hereby given that the Place of Meeting for religious worship described as WESLEYAN MISSION ROOMS, situated at 73 and 75, Oak-road, Horfield, in the civil parish of Bristol, in the registration district of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, which was duly certified for worship on the 27th day of May, 1927, has wholly ceased to be used as a Place of Meeting for religious worship by the congregation on whose behalf it was so certified, and that the Registrar General has caused the record of the certification thereof to be cancelled pursuant to the Act 18 & 19 Vic., c.81, from the 11th day of August, 1930. Dated 11th August 1930.

Given the nature of its occupation, one would rather expect it to have been a new meeting, and the congregation to have gone on to meet elsewhere, in more permanent accomodation, but this was not, as far as I am aware, the case.


Now or formerly Wesleyan Methodist.

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 Horfield, Bristol, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
