Administrative/Biographical history:

The parish of Saint Michael, Chiswick, was created in July 1906 from parts of the parishes of Saint Nicholas, Chiswick, and Christ Church, Turnham Green. Its name and many of its furnishings came from the sale of Saint Michael le Strand, which was located where The Strand Palace Hotel now stands. A wooden hall was built on the Elmwood Road site in February 1908 and used for worship until December 1909, when the new church, built by Caroe and Passmore and an example of the Arts and Crafts movement, was opened.
