Old Whitevale and Bluevale churches

PMC posted on the 14/04/2015 6:49:13 PM

Does anyone have any photo's of either the Bluevale church that used to be on Duke Street along near the Bristol Bar or the Whitevale Church that was at 32 Whitevale St, next to St Anne's? They were demolished in the 70's or 80's, but I can't find anything on-line.

I was married in Bluevale Church to Maisie Todd in 11 sept 65 by the minister Rev John Jolly (not the Ricki Fulton version) but the real thing, we nicked named him Jolly John, I met Maisie at the youth fellowship it was on Saturday with games and music, Sunday nights with speakers, great fun and no nonsense. More info about Bluevale please.

I was christened by Rev John Jolly in the Bluevale Church in late 1950's - any idea how / where I can access church records? I'm hoping to find details of godparents (presume this would be recorded?)

From the Whitehill Former Pupils' Club record supplied to me by the online@dennistoun.co.uk, I have found line from the listing of my uncle James Telfer who died in Flanders 1916. It says: Listed on Bluevale Church Memorial, Duke Street , Glasgow (housed in Dennistoun New Parish Church: J.S.Telfer). From this, I assume the records of Bluevale Church are to be found in Dennistoun New Parish Church which you can find by Googling the name.. Hope this is helpful. I'll be contacting Dennistoun New Parish Church myself. All the best, Margaret Blair msblair@hotmail.ca

My parents were married in Bluevale Church by the Reverend John Jolly in April 1963. The only photos I have of the church are their wedding photos, just showing the front door of the church.
