Neither of these plaques can be seen in our photo. They are arranged symmetrically low down on either side of the entrance: Cadogan to the left and Willes to the right.

When built in 1888-90 this became the widest church in London, wider than St Paul's by 9 inches. The architect, Sedding, died suddenly in 1891 and Henry Wilson took over the completion of the interior decoration, some of which is still not finished, 2012.
