Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

All Hallows originated in a mission established in the parish of Saint Michael and All Angels (P88/MIC) by Winchester College in 1876. The mission was responding to a large increase in the population of this area. In 1879 a parish was established and a permanent church was constructed, consecrated in 1880. Some of the funding for the construction came from the sale of All Hallows, Bread Street, City of London. Several fittings were transferred from the old church to the new building, including the pulpit, some wood panelling, the reredos and the organ. A parish room and mission room were added in 1884-85; a vicarage followed in 1911. The church suffered severe damage during the Second World War and was demolished in 1952. The parish merged with Saint Nicholas, Aberfeldy Street, to create the parish of Saint Nicholas and All Hallows.
