Archival Information

Archival history:

P75/MRK/9-12: These church services registers were found amoung the records of St Anne's Church, Wandsworth. Since the Revd Harold Gatehouse Bear, vicar of St Anne's Wandsworth (1945-1953) was previously the incumbent of St Mark's Deptford, it is likely that he took these services registers with him to his new parish.

Immediate source of acquisition:

Records P75/MRK/1-8 deposited in 1953; records P75/MRK/9-23 transferred from the records of Saint Anne's, Wandsworth.
