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 1858, and we understand it is still open.

This Church, with accompanying Church Hall, was built in 1885-6 for a congregation formed in 1858 of Presbyterian worshippers from the former Cheltenham Chapel, in St George's Square. It was known originally as St Andrew's Presbyterian Church, and today it is a Listed Building - see the British Listed Buildings website for more details.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 7th September 1886 (p.4335) recorded its registration for marriages:

NOTICE is hereby given, that a separate building, named St. Andrew's Church, situate at Fauconberg-road, in the parish of Cheltenham, in the county of Gloucester, in the district of Cheltenham, being a building certified according to law as place of religious worship, was, on the 11th day of August, 1886, duly registered for solemnizing marriages therein, pursuant to the Act of 6th and 7th Wm. 4, cap. 85. Dated 16th August 1886.

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.
