This Church had 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 1777, but we understand it was closed in 1999.

"St Michael's, on St Michael's Hill, is a plain edifice erected in 1777, upon the site of a former church dedicated to the same saint. The tower, which is lofty, is part of the old church. The living is a rectory, value £370 per annum, in the gift of J.S. Harford Esq., and trustees." [Extract from Webster & Co.'s Postal and Commercial Directory of the City of Bristol, and County of Glamorgan, 1865]

It was also known as St Michael on the Mount Without. It was bombed in 1941, but was evidently repaired, as it was not closed until 1999. Surviving parish registers cover the periods 1653-1950 (baptisms), 1653-1996 (marriages), and 1653-1878 (burials).

The Bristol Town Plan of 1884 shows there were several areas surrounding the Church set out as graveyards, all by then disused, but not - apparently - closed by 1854, under the requirements of the Burial Act of the previous year, since the above list of parish registers indicate burials were seemingly still taking place as late as 1878.


Now or formerly Church of England.

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