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 1899, but we understand it was closed by 1980.

Wycliffe Congregational Church in Totterdown was on the north-west corner of the junction of St Luke's Crescent with Windsor Terrace. It is shown on Old Maps as a long narrow building, the longer side facing St Luke's Crescent, equivalent to the width of 8 houses, and as deep as the house plots.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 27th October 1899 (p.6469) recorded its registration for marriages:

NOTICE is hereby given, that a separate building named Wycliffe Congregational Church, situated at Windsor-terrace, Totterdown, in the civil parish of Bristol, in the county borough of Bristol, in the registration district of Bristol, being a building certified according to law as a place of meeting for religious worship, was on the 19th day of October, 1899, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th Wm. 4, c.85. Dated 20th October, 1899.

A similar notice, published in the Gazette of 10th June 1980 (p.8360) recorded the cancellation of the registration, and also indicated the building was no longer used. Since then, it has been demolished, and a block of 3-storey town houses, named "Wycliffe Row", now occupies the site.

The Bristol Record Office hold records of marriages for the period 1901-1972 (as Congregational), and 1973-1974 (as URC).


Now or formerly Congregational.

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