There has been a mass centre in Selsdon since ca. 1927 when a small brick chapel was built. The current church opened in 1962 adjacent to the former chapel.
St Columba's is a short walk from the (Anglican) church of Selsdon St John the Divine.
We know of only three Roman Catholic cemeteries in the London area, St. Mary's in Kensal Green, St. Patrick's in Leytonstone, and St. Mary Magdalene in Mortlake.
Many local cemeteries may have Roman Catholic sections see https://www.croydon.gov.uk/bereavement-services/cemeteries for the Croydon area.
Selsdon is in the London Borough of Croydon.
Unless otherwise stated the dates for the creation of parishes are taken from Youngs, Frederick. A., jr.. Guide to the Administrative Units of England; Royal Historical Society: London, 1979 volume 1 Southern England.
