St Olave Hart Street - church

Categories: Religion

Survived the Great Fire but was so badly damaged in WW2 that for the period 1948 - 54 the congregation used a temporary church in Mark Street.

Samuel Pepys and his wife Elizabeth are buried here and it is here that the Samuel Pepys Club hold a memorial service each year, close to the date of Samuel's death.

Spitalfield's Life have a good post on Samuel Pepys At St Olave’s.
