Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Peter's was constructed in 1882-84. The church originated in a mission established by 1864 within part of the parish of All Saints, Poplar (P88/ALL1) which served both the parish of All Saints and part of Saint Anne's Limehouse (P93/ANN). The permanent church building was funded using money from the sale of Saint Martin Outwich, City of London (P69/MTN3). The architect was Ewan Christian. The church was closed in 1971 and demolished. The parish was united with Saint Anne's, Limehouse.
