Plaque: Christ Church Spitalfields - Mr Root


Christ Church, Spitafields. All applications about Marriages, Burials &c. at this church must be made to Mr Root.

Not a memorial but we wanted to include this sign, partly for completeness but also, it seems to be fading rapidly. The plaque is in Fournier Street, then called Church Street. The 2011 photo at Spitalfields Life shows it more legible than ours of 2017. Mr Root, and W. H. Wright were presumably the registrars at different times, but we can't verify that, which is a pity because it would be nice to date this sign.

These plaques are both facing the pavement, but above the heads of any passing pedestrians. In our photo 'Mr Root' is the dark square near the red car; 'men and ladders' is on the other side of the fancy railings.

We've collected a total of 7 plaques on the outside of this church - see Christ Church Spitalfields - porch.
