Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Francis' Church began as a mission within the parish of Saint Andrew, High Road, Willesden in 1911. A permanent church was consecrated in 1933 and the parish became independent in December of that year. Steps towards reuniting the parish with its former parent began in 1976 when the vicar of Saint Francis' was appointed "priest in charge" of Saint Andrew's. The benefices were united in 1983 and the two parishes were formally merged in 1991, becoming known as Saint Andrew and Saint Francis of Assisi, Willesden.
