Administrative/Biographical history:

All Saints church, Notting Hill, was originally dedicated to Saint Ann. The building was built after the model of Saint Columb Major in Cornwall to the design of William White. The building was completed in 1855, but because of shortage of money, it was left without glass or furniture until 1861. During the 4 or 5 years while it remained semi-derelict surrounded by half completed houses, it was referred to as 'All Saints in the Mud'.

The church was severely damaged in the Second World War: on 29 September 1940 an incendiary bomb followed by a high explosive bomb destroyed the Lady Chapel and the tracery of the East windows was shattered, the roof damaged and the high altar wrecked. Restoration was completed in 1951 by Milner and Craze. The pulpit and Lady Chapel were restored by Sir J. Ninian Comper.
