Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Saint Luke, Oseney Crescent was consecrated by the bishop of London, 4th December 1869. It was built with money paid by the Midland Railway Company as compensation for the church of Saint Luke, Euston Road which had earlier been compulsorily purchased as part of the site of the new Saint Pancras Station.

In September 1955, the benefice of Saint Luke was united to the benefice of Saint Paul, Camden Square, Saint Pancras. Saint Paul ceased to be the parish church but was retained as a chapel of ease. Records of the united parish from 1955 are listed with this series; for records of Saint Paul, Camden Square before 1955, see P90/PAU. In April 1987, the united parish was dissolved and the separate parishes recreated.
