Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Saint John was constructed in 1838 as a chapel of ease to the parish church at Norwood. A parish was assigned in 1850 and extended in 1880. The original church on Southall Green was replaced in 1910 by a larger building on Church Avenue, constructed in a Perpendicular style by C. G. Miller. The old church building was converted for use as a hall.
