We believe the Church does 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 1985, and we understand it is still open.

The Muslim community in Gloucester dates from the late 1950s, with the Gloucester Muslim Welfare Association being formed by 1965. The association converted two houses in Ryecroft Street as a prayer hall or mosque, which was registered for worship in 1968. When larger premises were required, the houses were demolished and a larger mosque, Masjid E Noor, was built on the same site. It was designed by local architect Brian Tait, and opened in 1983.

From the later 1970s the Gloucestershire Islamic Trust, formed to serve the needs of a separate group of Muslims, held services in a warehouse in All Saints Road. This building was demolished in 1985 and replaced by Jama Al-Karim Mosque.
