Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The parish of All Hallows Lombard Street is first mentioned in 1053. The church was rebuilt between 1494 and 1516, including the addition of the stone porch from the priory of Saint John of Jerusalem. The church burned down during the Great Fire of 1666; and was rebuilt by Wren between 1686 and 1694.

The united parishes of Saint Benet Gracechurch and Saint Leonard Eastcheap were united to the parish of All Hallows Lombard Street in 1864. The parish of Saint Dionis Backchurch was joined to All Hallows Lombard Street and united parishes in 1876. These united parishes were joined to the united parishes of Saint Edmund the King and Martyr and Saint Nicholas Acons in 1937 to form Saint Edmund the King and Martyr and united parishes, with Saint Edmund the King and Martyr as the parish church.

In 1937 the church was closed. The site was sold and the building demolished, with the proceeds going towards the construction of All Hallows, Chertsey Road and All Saints, Queensbury. The Lombard Street tower was reconstructed as part of All Hallows, Chertsey Road.
