Not Brentford

St Lawrence's Church

Part of church building and tower, windows boarded up

View of St Lawrence's church, the parish church for New Brentford from 1744 or 1747 (different sources give different dates): prior to that St Mary Hanwell served New Brentford.

The tower dates from around 1480 (Kentish ragstone). The body of the church was re-built in brick in 1764 by Thomas Hardwick and in 1874 a south aisle was added.

The church closed in 1961 and is still unused.

The parish registers for St Lawrence are available on microfilm / fiche at London Metropolitan Archives and scans of the originals can also be accessed through the ancestry.co.uk website. See Selby Whittingham's research into people connected with St Lawrence's church.

Thanks to Dave Stoneleigh who provided this photograph, taken on June 28th 2008 during the Brentford Festival weekend.
