After 1893

Chapel of the Holy Sepulcher

G. E. Street's St. Mary Magdalene in Paddington


The chapel was intended as a memorial to Dr. Richard Temple West, the church's first vicar. According to Father Stephenson's history of the church and its decorations, "Everthing in the Chapel was designed by Comper," who also provided explanations of some of the complex iconography he used.
