Administrative/Biographical history:

The parish of Saint Clement was created from part of the parish of Saint James, Norland, Kensington. The schools were opened in 1866 and the church, designed by J.P. Aubyn, in 1867. It seated 800 and was consecrated by the Bishop of Armagh on 7 May 1867. It is a wide low building of yellow brick with red bands and stone dressings, a large slated roof with a slate-hung belfry turret containing a clock and crowned with a spire. Its principal treasure is the large cartoon of 'Jesus at the Well of Samaria' by Sir Edward Burne-Jones.

The first incumbent was the Reverend Arthur Dalgarno Robinson, curate of Saint Stephen, Shepherds Bush, who remained until 1881. From 1881-1886 the incumbent was the Reverend Edwyn Hoskyns, later to become Bishop of Southwell.

In 1882 the northern part of the parish became part of the parish of Saint Helen.
