Both the above respondants are correct with their respective details, none
their suggestions, may I be so bold as to say, are the correct location
that you

I think that the location that you are researching is marked on the
Victorian maps
and is called BRUNSWICK PLACE and can be seen on the Victorian A to Z map
page 17 M25 ( off Back Church Lane on the west side).

This small place is listed as falling within the parish of St JAMES
was destroyed early in WW2 about 1940. The records for this church are
held at the
GLRO as far as I can tell. There seems to be no trace of this church in
the Phillimores
Atlas and Index of Parish Registers.

I wish you the very best of luck with your research into your family
