Marriages 1754 - 1837
Bridewell Chapel


The Parish

The precinct of the Bridewell lies towards the western end of the City of London, fronting the The Thames and covering a small area just west of Blackfriars Bridge. The Precinct was given by the Royal Court of Henry VIII as a hospital for the citizens of the capital and sporadically marriages were performed in the small chapel which was present. All trace of the buildings have been lost over time and the site, immediately west of London Wall is today occupied still by a hospital that of the buildings of St Barts.

The Church

Online images of the hospital are the only record of what this site must have looked like to the citizens of the time.
