History

All Saints' Church was built for the newly created parish of Poplar to serve the rapidly developing population. The churchyard was re-ordered on the north side as a public garden by the MPGA in 1893. The chapel of St Frideswide was incorporated into the church when St Frideswide's Church was bombed in World War 2 and All Saints also suffered some damage.
