Administrative History:
  • It is not known exactly when the first parish church in Fulham was established but it was probably in the mid-thirteenth century. A church on the existing site was dedicated to All Saints in 1445 however with the notable exception of the fifteenth-century tower the present church is from 1881 and was built to designs by Sir Arthur Blomfield.

    Fulham and Hammersmith constituted a single parish right up until 1834. Throughout its history the parish was closely associated with the Bishops of London and with the manor of Fulham over which they had jurisdiction. Several are buried in the churchyard which was closed for general burials in 1863. Two chapels-of-ease were established for the parishioners - Saint Paul Hammersmith in 1631 and Saint Mary North End in 1814. The church still has an active congregation. Current information is available at www.allsaints-fulham.org.uk.
