Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Mark's was consecrated in May 1839. It was designed by architects T.D. Wyatt and D. Brandon, paid for by the Metropolitan Church Fund. The parish was assigned in 1841, taken from part of the parish of Saint Mary's Whitechapel (P93/MRY1). The area served by the church was very poor and included a large number of foreign immigrants who were not Christians. The church struggled to stay open. In 1926 the parish was united with Saint Paul's, Dock Street (P93/PAU2), and the church was demolished a year later.
