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 before 1885, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when, and the premises are now in secular use.

Fraser Street Gospel Hall has probably been closed for many years, as in the present day, it is represented by two terraced houses, #36 and #36A Fraser Street, looking indistinguishable from the ones on either side. It is recorded in Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1902 as "Plymouth Brethren Meeting Room", and was, at the time, the only building of note on the south side of Fraser Street; however by 1914, the street was more populous, and it is listed between #34 and #36 Fraser Street as "Mission Room". Bristol Town Plans of 1885 show the building at this position as a "Meeting House", with seating for 150 for a congregation of Christian Brethren. At this time, the street was only partially finished. Only 10 houses had been built on its north side, and whilst the south side was almost complete, there was a gap where #22-28 are today.

Ashmead's Maps of Bristol show the building was already in existence by 1874, but as it is unlabelled, it is not known whether it had opened as a place of worship by that time. If so, its congregation predated that of nearby St Michael & All Angels Church, whose first permanent Mission Room was erected in 1884.


Now or formerly Plymouth Brethren.

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

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

Please also remember that the former Fraser Street Gospel Hall is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
