Parish List - The Worshipful Company of Parish Clerks


Before the Great Fire of London in 1666, there were a total of 97 parish churches within the walls of the Square Mile.  There was an effort by Sir Christopher Wren to rebuild 51 of them after the devastation, but in the event only 26 survive to the modern day.
