Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Mary, Haggerston, was constructed in 1827 to designs by John Nash. During the Second World War the church was destroyed, and from 1953 the parish was united with that of Saint Chad, Haggerston, and the registers are continued in those of Saint Chad. Later registers, to date, are in care of the incumbent of Saint Mary with Saint Chad, Haggerston. The site of the church became a playground.
