Name of creator(s): Parish of Holy Innocents, Kingsbury | Church of England


Administrative/Biographical history:

The ancient parish church of Kingsbury was dedicated to Saint Andrew. In 1884 a new church, dedicated to Holy Innocents, was built and became the parish church for Kingsbury. All the endowments, emoluments and records of the old church were transferred to the new {see DRO/045/A/03/001}. The records described below therefore relate to the old St Andrew's church before 1884 as well as to Holy Innocents. In 1885 the Consolidated Chapelry of Neasden-cum-Kingsbury was established and assigned to the old church of St Andrew {see DRO/045/A/03/003}. In 1933 the Victorian church of St Andrew, Wells Street, Marylebone, was re-erected in Kingsbury, next to the ancient church, and became the parish church for a new parish of St. Andrew Kingsbury. Records for this new parish and for the chapelry that it replaced have already been deposited in the LMA (see list DRO/028).
