We believe the Chapel 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 1878, but we understand it was closed by 1973.

Phil Draper's ChurchCrawler website provides the information that Angers Road Chapel was erected in 1878, and was a small red brick building. Old Maps show it stood on the south side of the street, on the south-west corner of the junction with Stanley Hill, which at the time extended downwards as far as Angers Road. The street directory portion of Kelly's Directory of Bristol of 1914 lists Angers Road lying between 80 Wells Road and 90 Bath Road, recording its "Primitive Methodist Chapel & School" between #43 and the junction with Bath Road. The next entry, #46, heads the listing for the opposite side of the road. The Ecclesiastical section records it as belonging to Bristol Second Circuit of Primitive Methodists, which also included Essex Street in Bedminster, Bedminster Down Chapels, and one at Keynsham.

Otherwise it appears to have kept a low profile, as it is not listed in the Bristol Record Office's Handlist of Parish Records, and I was unable to find any mention of its registration for marriages in The London Gazette. Happily, however, there is a photograph captioned "Totterdown, Bristol, 1973" in the "Bristol Before Your Time" Album of Stephen Dowle's Flickr Photostream, which shows not only the Chapel, but also how steep Stanley Hill is!

Since then, its site, and surrounding buildings, including the lower part of Stanley Hill, have now cleared, and the area has been laid out as an attractive park.


Now or formerly Primitive 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.
