St John's was bombed in 1940 and services held for a time in St Luke, Burdett Road. In 1948 a small temporary church was built on the site of St John's, dedicated to St Matthew and St John, to serve St John's and St Matthew, Salmon Lane parishes. The name was changed in 1951 to St John and St Matthew.
It is advisable to consult the records of the two parishes in conjunction, for the post-1945 period.
