All Hallows the Great

All Hallows the Great was a church located on the south side of Thames Street and on the east side of Church Lane. It was also known as All Hallows le grant, All Hallows at the Hay, and All Hallows the More in Thames Street (Harben). It is not labelled on the Agas map.
Stow describes All Hallows the Great as a faire church with a large cloyſter, but adds that it has been foulely defaced & ruinated (Stow 1598, sig. N3v). According to Harben, the church was restored in both 1627 and then again after the Great Fire of London in 1666.
When Harben was writing in 1918 the churchyard remained intact, even though all but the tower and vestry had been removed in 1893.They were bombed in 1939. Weinreb, Hibbert, Keay, and Keay note that in 1969 the churchyard was removed and Mondial House was built on the site (Harben; Weinreb 18).
