Administrative/Biographical history:

The parish of All Souls, Harlesden, was formed in 1875 from Willesden, Acton, St John's, Kensal Green, and Hammersmith. Mission services had been held by the curate of St Mary's, Willesden, at Harlesden institute from 1858. The parish church at Station Road, Harlesden, was built and consecrated in 1879. It replaced an iron church dating from 1867.

St Luke's mission church, on Old Oak Lane, Acton, was founded between 1894 and 1898 by All Souls. It appears not to have become a separate parish.
