Administrative History:

The Queens Street chapel, predecessor of St Werburgh, was erected after 1796 by the Rev Thomas Penswick, although there is evidence of the existence of a priest in Chester before this date. By the 1860s, the chapel had become unable to cater for the growing congregation, and St Werburgh was built in 1875, and extended between 1904 and 1914.
