> The LDS rather confusingly continues to call the registers for St.Pancras
> New, St Pancras Old.
> St.Pancras parish (which ended up with 33 ecclesiastical parishes by 1890)

> Metropolitan Borough of St.Pancras, and then part of the London Borough of
> Camden in 1965. It was the seventh most populated borough [1881 - 236,000]
> in England, although not very large geographically.
