Name of creator(s): Parish of St Mary, Summerstown | Church of England


Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Saint Mary originated in a small chapel built to serve the hamlet of Summerstown. As the population of the area expanded it was decided to replace the chapel with a church, built between 1903 and 1920 to the designs of Godfrey Pinkerton.

Files P95/MRY2/120-129 are the records of Saint Mary Summerstown Slate Club (a club of people who save money in a common fund for a specific purpose or event such as Christmas), which is believed to be the oldest in the Borough of Wandsworth. It was founded in 1886, and closed in 1965, owing to decreasing membership.

Records of the parish of Saint Mary, Keeble Street, Summerstown, including registers of baptisms and marriages; registers of church services; Parochial Church Council minutes; financial accounts; papers relating to the construction of a new church including faculties and plans; and records of the Slate Club.
