Inscription

Grundstenen till denna kyrka lades den 26 Februari 1910 AF Svenske Ministern i London, Grefve Herman Wrangel.

The foundation stone of this church was laid on the 26 February 1910 by Count Herman Wrangel. Swedish Minister to the Court of St James.
Psalm 84-2-6

Even the sparrow has found a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may have her young -
a place near your altar....
