The church was built in 1839. It was latterly known as Bermondsey Christ Church, Jamaica Road and is easily confused with the original Bermondsey Christ Church, but not the same!
The last registers are from 1950 although burials ceased in the early 1850s. This was with the exception of Sir William Gomm (died 1875) and his widow, Elizabeth, Lady Gomm (died 1877), for whom special permission was needed. (Sir William Gomm was the Lord of the Manor of Rotherhithe for 53 years, and his widow followed him in the office for just two years.)
