Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint James' Chapel was consecrated in 1791 to serve the adjoining burial ground of Saint James', Piccadilly, acting as a proprietary chapel. One of the first people to be buried here was Lord George Gordon, instigator of the Gordon Riots of 1780. In 1852 the graveyard was closed and some of the land became a public garden (St James Garden). After the closure of the burial ground it was sold in 1871 to the Saint Pancras Church Trustees to become the parish church of the new ecclesiastical district of Saint James. It was demolished in 1964 and the parish was united with Saint Pancras (P90/PAN1).
