St Matthew 1799-1819
More about St Matthew:
St Matthew's Parish was the parish from which other churches were established. Many of these have now closed. Within, or on the edge, of the current parochial boundaries were the churches of:
• Holy Trinity, Old Nichol Street
• St Andrew, Viaduct Place
• St James the Great, Bethnal Green Road
• St Jude, Old Bethnal Green Road
• St Matthias, Cheshire Street
• St Paul, Virginia Road
St James's is the only building left. It is now a residential building on Bethnal Green Road. It was officially closed for worship in 1984.
The churchyard was used for burials until 1877. There are only two graves left in the churchyard, one of the Huguenot family of Peter Renvoize and the other of Joseph Merceron, an infamous 19th century Churchwarden. All other gravestones have been either damaged or removed. There is a map of the graveyard, along with a register of inscriptions as could be discerned in 1896, which are both lodged with the London Metropolitan Archives. (from St-Matthews.co.uk)
