  • Brunswick Church was apparently in Great Dover Road, Southwark. According to the Religious Census of London, on Sunday 24th October 1886 the morning congregation was 134, with 229 attending in the evening. A further survey carried out in 1902-03 and published as the Religious Life of London was more detailed. The morning congregation consisted of 26 men, 20 women and 73 children, whilst in the afternoon or evening 41 men, 64 women and 54 children attended. Southwark Local History Library and Archive have Minutes from the Church for the 1920s, but it does not appear in the 1940 Methodist Statistical returns.
