Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Park Chapel, Chelsea, was constructed some time between 1718 and 1724 as a chapel of ease to the over-subscribed parish church of Chelsea (known as the Old Church), which was suffering from a lack of space and could not hold half of the population of the parish. Park Chapel was renamed Emmanuel Chapel in 1906 but was demolished in 1912. In 1913 the chapel was rebuilt and renamed Saint Andrew's Church. In 1973 the parish was united with that of Saint John's, World's End, and served by Saint John's church.
