The church of Our Lady of Pity and St. Simon Stock is a Roman Catholic church originally built ca. 1906 and extended ca. 1936. There is no graveyard.

Historical notes on English Catholic missions, Kelly, Bernard W. (Rev), 1907:
This mission was commenced at Christmas 1902, the place of worship being a disused Methodist chapel hired for the purpose. In 1903 a fine site was given for a church in the Chelverton Road by Lady Westbury, and on this piece of ground a temporary iron building was erected. The estimated Catholic population of the district is about 450. Fr. Robt. Collinson, late of Newhaven, is the incumbent. A permanent church in the Florentine style of architecture was opened by Bishop Amigo of Southwark, Sept. 2, 1906.




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.
