A chapel was built as part of the Queen Charlotte's Hospital, Marylebone Road, Hammersmith, and was opened in 1739. Many births and baptisms occurred within its walls during its operation. It was one of four lying-in hospitals established in Greater London in the mid-18th century. This hospital was principally intended for the "wives of poor industrious Tradesmen or distressed House-keepers" and the wives of soldiers and sailors.
