Preserve the name Middlesex Hospital Chapel

2,960
Supporters

Middlesex Hospital Chapel, Mortimer Street, is a grade II* listed building. The developers Exemplar, Aviva and Kaupthing who are restoring it want to drop the words Middlesex and Hospital and call the building either Pearson Chapel or Pearson Hall. There is strong local and international feeling that the name Middlesex Hospital Chapel should be retained, not erased. Its name is part of its heritage status.

Update: Since we started the petition the plans to call the chapel Pearson Hall or Pearson Chapel have been dropped. But during June 2014 it emerged that a new name 'Fitzrovia Chapel' was being put forward. This name has now been adopted by the trust that is due to take over the running of the chapel.

This petition was delivered to:
  • Leader, Westminster City Council
    Councillor Philippa Roe
  • Director Exemplar
    Mark Younger
  • Founding Director Exemplar
    Daniel Van Gelder
  • Chairman Fitzrovia Chapel Foundation
    Edward Turner
