Custodial history:
St. James started as a school and lecture room attached to St. George's in 1862. The foundation stone of the church was laid in May 1867 and it was consecrated in 1869. It was assigned a District from St. George's by Order in Council, 22 April 1872 (London Gazette, 25 April). In 1879 part of the parish was transferred to All Souls, Astley St., by Order in Council, 29 November, (London Gazette, 12 December 1879). The church became unsafe and the last service was held on 16 September 1962, and the parish was re-united with All Souls as All Souls with St. James's, by Order in Council, 11 November (London Gazette, 17 November 1966). References to the closure of St. James's and the union with All Souls are to be found among the records of All Souls (L117/5/9 and 10).
The records were deposited in the Library as Diocesan Record Office in November 1982 by Rev. J. Chapman, and by Rev. J.I. McFie, Area Dean, in March 1987.
