Administrative/Biographical history:

In 1865 Saint Pancras Station was constructed, which necessitated the destruction of the church of Saint Luke, Euston Road. Christ Church was built in 1868 as a replacement. Architects Newman and Billing adopted a Gothic style with iron columns. The church was bombed in 1940 (when it is thought the marriage register for 1923-40 was destroyed) and in 1954 the parish was united with Saint Pancras, Euston Road (P90/PAN1).
