Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Jude's was established in the mid-Victorian era to ease the pressure on the ancient parish church caused by rapid population expansion in the area. The church was bombed in December 1940; thereafter marriages were solemnized at Saint Chrysostom's Church (P73/CRY), Hill Street, or in Saint Jude's chuch hall. Saint Jude's parish was united with that of Saint Chrysostom, as Saint Chrysostom and Saint Jude, in 1960, and Saint Chrysostom's church became the parish church of the united parish.
