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.

Narrowly escaped demolition in the 1970s by the intervention of The Victorian Society and John Betjeman.
