Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Bishop of London was held to exercise responsibility for Anglican churches overseas where no other bishop had been appointed. He retained responsibility for churches in northern and central Europe until 1980, but his jurisdiction in southern Europe ceased in 1842 on the creation of the diocese of Gibraltar. In 1980, the Bishop of London divested himself of all overseas jurisdiction and a new diocese of 'Gibraltar in Europe' was established.

The chaplaincy was established in 1910. It closed during the Spanish Civil War and then closed permanently in 1963. From 1921-3 services were held in the Seamen's Institute and between 1942-63 in private residences. At other times services were conducted in a "church room" in Cartagena.
