Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of All Saints, Caledonian Road, was constructed in 1837 to 1838, designed by William Tress. It seated 1,116 although this was later expanded to 1,150. A district was assigned to the church in 1839, formed from part of the parish of Holy Trinity. The vicar of Holy Trinity was patron. The parish of All Saints later decreased in size as parts of it were assigned to Saint Andrews, Thornhill Square and Saint Silas, Penton Street, Clerkenwell. The parish was joined to Saint Silas in 1972, however, services were held in the church hall under the vicar of Saint Andrew's. In 1975 the church was destroyed by fire and demolished. The church ran various missions including All Saints Mission Church, White Lion Street (see P76/ALL); Saint John the Evangelist Mission, Copenhagen Street; All Saint's Mission, Thornhill Bridge Place; and the Crinan Street Mission.
