Choirboy Laurence Olivier


Choirboy Laurence Olivier

Princess Diana worked at the Young England Kindergarten here.

Location: St George's Square, Lupus Street, Pimlico

Description: Saint Saviour Pimlico is a Church of England parish in the liberal Catholic tradition consecrated on 16 July 1864.

The executors of the legendary master builder, Sir Thomas Cubitt, donated the land and the Duke of Westminster funded much of the building work. The Spire was the tallest in London in the 1860s and remains a landmark visible from much of Pimlico today.

Thomas Cundy Jr, son of the great architect and builder of Pimlico, designed the Church.

Laurence Olivier's father was a curate at Saint Saviour and Lord Olivier was a choirboy and boat boy here.

The founder of modern lawn tennis, Major Walter Clopton Wingfield (1833-1912) was a regular worshipper and the writer, Sir Compton Mackenzie (18831972), was married in the Church.

Diana, Princess of Wales worked at the Young England Kindergarten in our Hall prior to her marriage to Prince Charles.

Following the tragic death of the Princess a commemorative tree was planted in the Hall courtyard.

A bench seat in her memory stands by the main doors to the building. The Young England Kindergarten use our Church Hall to this day.
