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 1931, but we understand it was closed in 1962.

The foundation of St Hugh's Mission Church has been recorded in a booklet St Michael and All Angels, Windmill Hill: A Parish History, available on the website of St Michael and All Angels, Windmill Hill. It was built in Lynton Road in the early 1930s as a Mission of St John the Baptist, Bedminster's "Ancient Church" (now demolished). It is shown on Old Maps of 1947-1948 as a long, rectangular building, set back from the road, and backing onto a large area devoted to Allotment Gardens. By then, also, houses had been built on both sides of the road, and to provide an idea of its size, the plot St Hugh's occupied was roughly equivalent to 3 of the houses and their gardens. It is known to have been built by 1931, since Bristol Record Office hold records of baptisms for the period 1931-1962 (no marriages).

The account of St Michael's history describes how a parish reorganisation in the 1960s resulted in the closure of St Hugh's, after a new Mission of St John's was built, in Littleton Road. St Hugh's has since been demolished, and its site is now (2014) occupied by three semi-detached houses.


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.
