Dulwich Churches and Chapels

Welcome to our Dulwich Churches and Chapels page. We have included East Dulwich churches with Dulwich Churches and Chapels. Boundaries are often blurred, and we hope this will save people switching from page to page.
FamLoc lists details of Dulwich churches and chapels, gives register information, and links to map location and other info.
Church registers are a prime source for family historians, and it is interesting to know exactly where the church or chapel was located, if it still exists, etc.
Remember, not all churches and chapels performed baptisms, marriages and burials; where they do, and there are registers, it is mentioned below the relevant church or chapel.

FamLoc welcomes input from family and local historians on Dulwich churches and chapels.

  1. Are there any pictures of St Clements old church, which wa situated in the corner of Barry Road and Upland road, East Dulwich. It had a steeple. I remember this church standing and being demolished, but wondered when it was demolished and why. I believe flats were built in its place? Maybe you could confirm that? Thank you.
