Summary. An archaeological evaluation was carried out at Bourne Court, Mersea Road, Colchester, Essex in advance of the construction of twenty-seven new dwellings. No significant archaeological features or deposits were identified. The construction and subsequent demolition of the former chapel of rest and associated workshops (East of England Co-operative Society funeral parlour) appears to have caused significant disturbance to original ground-levels and may have destroyed any archaeological horizons previously present on the site.
