Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Holy Trinity, Church Lane, Finchley, was established in 1846 in order to combat 'godlessness' in this area, then a hamlet known as East End. A chapelry was assigned in 1846, and a vicarage created in 1872. The parish was reduced in size by the creation of new parishes at All Saints, East Finchley, and Saint Jude's, Hampstead Garden Suburb.
